Just started about a month ago, just working on getting the right equipment, demoing mowers and getting a feel for what works best. Just doing family lawns at this point and started working on my striping this afternoon and thought i'd get a few opinions. These stripes were laid down with a Lesco walk behind, unkn on year or hrs but what i do know is that its original blades, and it kills my hands after one yard. This was a double cut, mowed at both angles trying to get that checkered look but it didnt work as planned. Let me know what ya'll think!
