    I usually do not mow with any of my crews but this year I decided to show up my guys....

    I have a bet with one of my supervisors next week that he can't out do me... I gave him a digital camera and told him to take the best pictures of his lawns and I will take pictures of the one's I cut....

    If he wins...I have to give him a $500 late spring bonus.... If I win he has to pay my lunch for a month....

    Great pics. On the last picture there are real dark stripes but then there are fainter strips cris crossing it. How do you make them not as striped? Is that the way you cut the lawn and then you went back and just striped it?

    I have a sign at my shop with an arrow on it. Each week the arrow points in a different direction. My guys understand that all houses will have the same lines/stripes in that particular direction.

    We don't use any striping kit on our mowers but I wouldn't mind trying one out.
