That is so cool! how tough was it to do that and how much more time did it take versus when you normally cut it?

Ritchiem,

Great job. I love the view. Man I miss my summer trips up to Canada. Toronto, Niagara Falls, Alex Bay and the 1000 Islands. I could see myself sitting in your client’s backyard drinking some Molson Golden.

Looks great. If I remember correctly, you do those just with your mower?

John

I did it with my 48" Walkbehind and it was not tough at all. I probably took me about 15mins to do it...whereas it would normally take me about 10 minutes to mow the lawn. Only because you pass over about half the lawn twice.

Yes this lawn is just with my 48" Exmark Hydro Viking without a striping kit.

And about half my clients are on Georgian Bay...on the hot days we always blast down to the water. I love it here.

Damn nice job Ritchiem,

Looks like you were going for a subtle baseball diamond effect. Nicely done.
