    Ooops, sideways as usual ..... lol.
    Well on the way at this stage. Went well but, I wouldn't sat cruisey !
    Slab coming your way on the next camp, whats that pale carp u drink ?
    Collection at Montana or where ever.

    Back to the scalping of lawns.
    Ive always thought if its the odd scalp, here & there, its not really your fault, its the terrain.
    If however, its totally scalped (no matter how little) its your fault, you've mowed too low.
    All in agreeance ?

    Cheers Fred.

    I agree especially given that is is exactly what I did yesterday i.e. scalped an uneven patch.
