    At what angle does everyone make stripes, which one looks the best, and why....... I see diffrent yards with diffrent angles. some look almost stright, but had a smll angle I see others that have an angle that go all the way across the yard, and I see some that go stright back and forth..... I also see some that criss cross...... I figure this will be one that everyone will have input on.........

    Depends where the sun will be and from what direction you want the stripes to be most visible from. Or if theres a contour of a bed or something you want to follow. Depends on the individual property Id say... maybe you were thinking of something else.

    I alternate mowing direction weekly,so the stripes will differ from week to week.But, I do try to run them in a direction towards a home I want as an account as much as possible.That way,when they get up in the morning,the first thing they see is a nicely striped lawn staring at them.Got one account doing this,so far.

    Canadian, that is what I'm talking about...... I know differnt people do diffrent things, I personally try to make small angles towards the house "almost like NickN said", but a lot of people do it diffrent, I thought ti would ba a good topic to talk about.......
