Creative Lawn Mowing

The International Arena at Spruce Meadows is the most famous stadium in showjumping. It's the Centre Court, Wimbledon, of equestrian sports. One of its most distinctive features are the grass mounds in the Northeast and Southwest corners. The mounds are sometimes used to stage start gates, sometimes as finish gates, and sometimes simply as terrain features.

Today I finally learned how they keep the grass so nicely groomed.

That is cool... I've seen that at the masters when the mow along the lakes and ponds - however, not with the rope - Genius!
