    I have wondered the same thing. I do stripes but you can see where I went around the tree. Teach me something new!

    Nice pics, Phishook!

    But it really isnt' rocket science with the stripes seeming to go through trees and beds.

    This property was well thought out by Phishook. He mowed it from the Right side and striped it to the left. In the second picture, you can see where he mowed around that flower bed, blowing debris INTO the bed :eek: and around behind it and to the road. Then he comes back on the next stripe and covers up the tracks around the bed and comes toward the single tree. Mows up to the tree, and circles around on the camera side of the tree. Upon returning the next stripe, that covers the tracks from that tree....As long as you have the spacing figured out, mowing "through" trees is really just the secondary benefit to a well though out pattern.
