    I did a total of 4 in one neighborhood, but the 4th is on the camera itself in the cameras memory and I cannot find the cord. I like doing foreclosures, not that I dont do the best job I can all the time, but you can relax a bit with these...nobody will notice a stringer here and there or a scalp mark here and there...the bad thing is the wear and tear on my mower.

    Looks awesome. What's your method? I've heard folks say to start high and gradually lower the deck with each successive pass, but I've always just cut at the height I want it to be, and continue as needed. How many passes does it take your Toro on those tall ones?

    And, is it just me, or is that garage door on that last house really short?

    I start with deck high...its a trade off, when the grass is this tall its actually very thin underneath at the actual lawn so it doesn't cut well with deck high. I cut most of these 4 times, because its dry the mower did well...I just went slow. The second house was the worst, the lawn was rocky and rutted.

    The garage door is an illusion...its because its a split level.

    Makes sense. I have the same problem cutting tall stuff........it's thin and it just lays over and pops back up behind the mower. Makes for a very long day sometimes, which is why I charge a lot for these. Those look like nice properties in your pics........it's a shame they were ever let to get in that kind of shape.
