- Mar 1, 2004Hi Patti!
Congrats on your new mower. If you have a 15,000 sqft
lawn, you want to divide it up into zones because the
RL800 will not be able to cut 15,000sqft on one run.
Do you mind sketching a drawing of your yard layout?
I'll be glad to recommend a good way to setup your
zones after seeing that sketch.
Several users here have bascially "ignored" their
sidewalk by including it in the lawn as if it wasnt
there. You can run wire under the concrete or run it
though the cracks and sealing it with silicon. As long
as your sidewalk is somewhat level to the grass, you
should be fine. I thikn there are some files in the
Files area of this group with detailed instructions on
how to do that.
