    Mowed fairways and greens at high profile country club in college. Generally to get best looking cut, we would cut different directions but stay on same lines to "burn" in lines. Is it ok to do this year after year? Would you recommend reversing lines year after year? I can still see the same line that I used from last year. I am not a commercial mower just a homeowner who enjoys mowing and lawncare. Any other tips, I ususually cut only 45 deg l to r, and 45 r to l, should I cut front to back also? Does it matter, or personal preference?

    Thanks guys.

    you should go a different direction every week, if not you will get ruts from the mower, even with a little 21 it will still happen.
