Hi Keith,

Another 5 and 6 vote from me. Also, regarding the turning effect - Not sure how much it's a field and how much a lawn but, being a landscape gardener for a living, I mow the edge first, then do the up and down stripes and then  mow the edge again so you don't see the turning circle bit. Maybe you could do a band round the edge and even a slightly different colour to say 5 and 6 (halfway between the two for instance) as it's not just the actual cut and roll of the mower as such but also the way the sunlight hits it.

Hope makes sense and helps.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Sorry to be a pain in the a** Keith

If I were the farmer mowing this field, I would mow it length ways (i.e. left to right) unless the slope was too steep.

I see where you are coming from Webbo but sometimes, especially in N, it is better to go with what looks better. I think the vertical stripes would be better visually. Just my thoughts.
And Keith, after having another look, would the stripes be better just a tiny bit closer together?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The grass is always greener?

After more than one further attempt I'm relatively happy with this end result (although the field is several feet higher than originally planned  :D):



The local sheep seem to be happy:

I think that looks better Keith.
And I like the hedging on the perimeter which looks good in various shades of green.

Seconded; very nice, Keith.

Best wishes.
