    Im afraid we will see burning, but it will not be from mowing the same direction...we need rain!

    I actually cut mine this AM and it did stripe...faint, but you could and can still see them. I think if I would have gotten the Cali Trimmer I would see my stripes better.

    Good for you JSHE! I want to fabricate some sort of roller for the rear of my TruCut...I think a rear roller would be the key to more defined stripes...I have the front roller already, but I just can't help to think that a rear roller would lay down some serious stripes.

    I think the Bermuda looks better without stripes. Just a nice low cut carpet of grass.

    I have 12 zones, 20 min per zone 3 times per week on the rotors, and 10 min with the sprays, on the one zone with the Thermal Blue I do 30 min for that zone, its looking rough right now.
    You just sodded correct? Throw some iron down if its losing color, to hot for more N.
