    The left side doesn't look very dark, the right side is where its at! I double cut almost all of my lawns to make the stripe darker. I even triple cut some parts of the nicer lawns

    Who's the hater on your photo album?? LOL.
    Anyway, you leave the nicest cuts I have on here and say how you double cut most of your properties. I was wondering do you cut the same direction on each cut? Or do you change it up: ie: Horizontal 2X VS. Horizontal then Vertical. I usually double cut two different directions. Just looking for your input and whether there is a right or wrong in your opinion for the overall health of the turf. Also, I dont really care about stripes. Thanks.

    Thanks man, I change direction every week sometimes every other week, When i double cut i only cut the one direction im cutting that week. Any of the pics i posted where a diamond pattern is present those intersecting lines are from the week before, i did not cut it in two different directions that day to make a diamond pattern.

    I know that feeling! You definitely give a quality product/service.

    Just because were are in somewhat the same climate what kind of blades do you feel work best for you? I used high lifts this year and loved em. I recently switched to mulchers for the fall leaves and man they are horrible, clump central.

    Thanks man, i just get whatever the standard blade they came with when i go to my dealer to buy blades, I dont really spend much time trying a bunch of diffrent blades, I will however say i bought a set of super high lift blades one time and will never ever buy another set of them. They were horrible.
