For those of you who don't come from an agriculture background, outlining the perimeter of a field ( yard) are called making headrows .
You make 2-3, depending on how far your deck shoots grass. You then use the headrows to turn around your equipment in. In the ag world this keeps your equipment from crushing your valuable crop.
You can also make your turns so that the open side of the deck is always away from the perimeter.
The principal behind this is, " the best way to clean up a mess, is to not make one in the first place.
Followed by, " if you didn't have time to do it right the first time. How will you find time to do it over?"
my experience G6's mediocre with thick grass tall, great with mid-thickness maintained grass and EXCELLENT with leavesI would get the stock JD high lift blades before deciding on putting mulch kit back on. In my experience G6s will leave stragglers on Northern grass. The downside of the smaller clippings is disrupted air flow under the deck and less vacuum.
The piles of clippings can be grouped if you go over again and shoot a few of them nearer each other. Then you put your deck at max height and leave the discharge chute wide open while going over those thicker piles again. This can disperse a lot of it, and help it settle into the turf instead of sitting on top. When it looks clumpy like that, definitely do not cut it again at the same height. The problem will likely only get worse.here’s hoping, new blades come next week, it’s cut at 3”
haha yup figured that out pretty quick - few more times mowing I should have it down!
I assume the best way to clean this up is let it sit for and day and re-mow? Or do I need the new blades first?
HUGE difference and improvement, congrats. How much was being cutoff, still looks like you were removing 3-4" but what an improvement over the previous hay mess.Quick update… here’s the results after installing the G5 blades and bungee cord’ing the grass flap up…
