I nominate @wardconnor! As always, I have much respect for this guy's lawn. I'm not sure who will be able to compete with this work of art!

Haha, thank you. It was a lot of regrading by hand with a long 2x4, and it nearly killed me. Then worm casts and frost heaving undid a lot of it, but with the 90 degree double cut it doesn't show too bad in the photo :P

@davegravy 's lawn is a perfect example of how a greens mower can absolutely transform your yard. Very interesting looking over his journal and seeing where it started this year and the progress made.

Of course every entrant has an amazing yard. It's really tough having to choose just one lol
