Smeagol,JDFanatic, how do you mow to create a cool pattern like that......is each 'stripe' simply mown in the opposite direction? Do you need to use a roller afterwards or anything like that? I was inspired by your pic to try, but I can't get anything that looks anywhere near as cool as yours.
Also, how did you mow straight through that tree? :ROF :ROF :ROF

That pic was taken when I was using the side-discharge and Gator blades. I did mow up and down to create the stripes, but no roller. Now I'm using the mulch kit and you don't get as noticeable striping. The tree actually has a 36" dia. mulch bed around it. I guess it's hard to see in the picture.
