    I had a customer call and complain because her yard looked like a checkered board. I chuckled a little and said it won’t happen again. She preferred only one set of lines.

    Doesn't a Diamond pattern require double mowing whereas a wave pattern is single and why is there no straight line no pattern option

    Because going over the same back n forth pattern all the time is bad for the lawn... I look at wavy pattern like this,... You do it once in a while for fun but get back to diamond or checkerboard patterns so that it's a different cut each week

    We use the Dollar pattern. Which is what ever can be done in the least amount of time & be effective.
