Richard,

How long does it take to get the lawn to look so great. Would the stripes show up as well as they do after the first mowing or does it take many mowings for them to really show up?

that is the 3rd cut...if I know a lawn can really turn out nice I'll double cut it, or highlight my lines. You can get roller kits for mowers as well that will produce the same effect easier.

Default question

If you do double cut a lawn to make it look nice do you work that into your price or do you just cut your losses on it.

If I double cut lawns it is by my choice...so I would swallow my losses. However they act as my portfolio properties, such as this one. People look that them and say "I want my lawn to look like that". From that pic above I now have 3 more properties just like that one on the same street now. Marketing is everywhere...now how to use it!

So do you go around all the trees first then cut the straight lines? And how do you get those great lines with a tree right smack in the middle? Just raise the deck and backup then go again?

The only first cut I do is the perimeter then I start my lines. When I come up to a tree or other obstacle I go around and continue my line...doing so messes up your previous line so when I am done the lawn I'll go back over and fix my line. I'll try and draw up a diagram to explain in a bit.

Cool yeah I wnt lines like that. I guess different mowers do better or worse lines, huh? I would hate to buy a striping kit....not even sure where to get one.
