Mower tracks on new concrete

Just left a rather impressive grass ladden tire track on the customers new white concrete drive. Do I need to worry? (Luckily I notice after the first offense) (mower track not truck)

dont think u will have to worry, i am guessing those black tracks? it might wash away with the rain. If the customer does say something maybe try spraying it with a hose, if that doesnt work and they are being a pain about it maybe power wash. worst case scenerio would be having to paint it.

It should wash away with rain. I bet you don't do it again! I should know , I've also done this!

I did it once, the rain did wash away the tracks in short time. No complaint from the customer, but I now always try to avoid going on the pavement if possible. Just looks bad.....

Easiest way to avoid that is to make 2 perimeter passses around the lawn, then use those areas to turn around in when striping.
Also try not to run over clippings laying on the sidewalk or drive, as that will "glue" them to the concrete. I have usEd broom before; also scuff the area back & forth with your foot while using your blower to blow it away.
