John,

The stripes look great. I was also just wondering if you had in ground irrigation because your grass looks so green and thick.

I saw the pic on garden web and thought it looks great. I think you took some grief about the hubcaps if I remember right. They look cool as well. How long does it take you to mow that area?:D

hey stewart, correct this pic was on the other site... and yes, I did get a little greif about the hub caps..

dont care i think they look great.

The back yard looks bigger than it really is

<IMG SRC=http://www.apartofme.com/images/Mvc-208x.jpg>

I can do the back and side & front in under an hour. The 50" deck is more that i need really, but it makes it quick to cut.. I pull a lot of loam & fill around so its works well..


I used to cut with a 38" deck, and that would take just under 1 1/2 hours

Thanks.

nobody else has any yard photos? Im Hurt...

Hey Simple-John.................
I can see the green but where's the hole?
Probably doesn't matter. My ball would be in the water hazard anyhow :)
Did I mention that you have a great looking yard?

I think the yard looks awesome, you never did say how long it takes to mow? Does the trunk get in the way at all? I saw a bucket buddy attachment from Sporty's and thought it might be a good idea.
:D

stewart, sorry i thought i posted.. I think the picture covered it up.. i can do my lawn in under an hour, front and side also.. The Tractor trunk works really well. I bought it from someone who e-mailed me from the 'other forum' If you are interested e-mail me and ill send you his address. The trunk is a Deere trunk that they customized (no big deal) to fit my prestige. it was also 1/2 the price of the deere truck. I bought one for my father-n-laws 225 Deere and that was 1/2 the price that we would have paid from a dealer..

When not pulling a cart, the trunk is on the tractor it works great..

I just want some simplicity stickers for it.. and maybe ill paint it orange...

Merlin, i see you got the Pic posting down.. Now thats a big lawn!!!

It was either the last one I posted, or this one. When I got through with this one though, it was an idenical twin anyway. This one wasn't finished when I took this pic., but it was the last picture of it. After so many of them, they start to blur togegher. Unless my health improves, there won't be any more saved by me though.

Thanks! We just built the dock this past spring. We used a composite material (TimberTech) for the decking. It's help up well so far.

I didn't have a pick of the backyard handy - it's about 125 ft from the back of the house to the dock.

It's nice to be so close to the boat.
