    I thought it would be neat to see what kind of work us homeowners are doing on our own properties. I'll start with a couple of pix.

    Very nice. You did a great job going around the small trees to the right of the house.

    Thanks. I'm gonna rent a bed edger and make a bigger diameter circle around those trees soon.

    Did you use the Exmark stripe roller? The lawn looks good btw. I see a few light spots but nothing major.

    I bought the EZ Striper from York Sheet Metal (alot cheaper than Exmark). Just curious on what you mean by "light spots"?

    Nice work! I find sharp blades do a pretty good job of striping. I'm still kicking around the idea of fabing up some sort of kit though.

    And nice mower! I have a smilar engine on my old school Bunton:

    Lookin' good GlennJ & Cleanmaxx!

    Question - How did you post pictures right on the page vs. a link to a picture(s)? I can only figure out posting pictures via a link. :dizzy:
