    Do you ever get tired of straight lines? I do, I've been playing around with following the contours of the landscape to produce wavy stripes. I just started a few weeks ago, but here are a few pics.

    Thats pretty wicked there.

    I like to mow the grass real low, then round up my signature in the front.
     
  3. I tried the curvy stripes once but got dizzy doing it.

    Here is one more, I kinda don't like the pic because the bordering neighbor's lawn is shaggy at the back.

    Looks good right there. I have done that a few times. Sure does help change it up a little bit. You ever taken a yard that is kinda square/rectangular with nothing in the middle and make a multi colored square into the center?? That always confuses people when they look at it, LOL.

    I tried it once before, but need to practice more. Gotta be careful or it won't look good at all.

    If you own a walker is super easy to do so. I have cut hearts in to customers lawns for thier anniversary. I do put wavy stripes in my own lawn just for fun. Mostly because I have 125 oak trees in my front yard. So cutting straight lines is really a PITA
