I made a chute blocker out of 1/4 aluminum and punched holes all over for my Lazer HP 44" It worked really good as far as being able to mow close to landscape beds with the chute facing them, but naturally there was a lot of clumping (pic 2). If i open up the holes, the clumping might be less, but then more grass will be displaced in the beds. I really hate cutting the same way each week.....with the chute away from the beds. i end up leaving ruts in the ground and it does not look good. what do you guys use? or you just cut the same way week after week?
