    Circle jerk or not, If you are embarrassed of your own work then you shouldn't be making fun of someone else's.

    By the way that is a very small lawn. maybe he just can't help it on that lawn and makes perfect straight lines on larger lawns. He might have double cut it also leaving twice the tire marks.

    That lawn looks like a lawn for a smaller mower.

    Those areas are so small I wouldnt even bother striping them. Besides a 60"er would have a hard time to begin with!

    Keep in mind a lot of customers (probably 80-90% here) don't give a rats *** about striping. Striping, for the most part, is a way for landscapers to justify that they mow lawns for a living. I have the best stripes, yada yada, does the customer care? Are you taking additional time to do it? No, and Yes. Don't get caught up in the lawnsite groove and believe everything here is what the customer wants.

    Disclaimer: If done properly, stripes look great. There are a few people on here that really perfect it, and looks good. I stripe, but mostly out of necessity, because my damn eXmark can't NOT stripe, and it would look horrible to have all sorts of crazy lines in the lawn. If it could NOT stripe, I have a few lawns taht would be far easier (time savings of 50%) to not stripe.

    In the restaurant industry, why do you think chef's wear check pants? It distracts the customers from seeing any stains... Apply that here.
