That is beautiful work! I bet your properties stand out from others in the area. Do you have any suggestions on how to get lawn stripes to look so nice?

I just try to keep my blades sharp and do different angles but use the same lines when I redo a angle. It makes it a lot more fun to cut when you can look back and see how good it looks

Nice looking stripes you got going. You could add a roller or chains to the back and make them look even better.
Stripes down here are rather difficult to do. the grass is much thicker and stiffer than the northern grasses. Ive done it, but used a home made roller and had to go over it twice to make them look half way decent.
