Round In Circles

We have seen straight lines to form a chequer board effect, large diagonal lines, see blog entry ''Change of Direction' dated 2nd June 2010 and now the lawn in the front quadrangle has circles on it.

As with the diagonal lines, Joss uses string to set up his starting point. For the circles he runs string from a corner, diagonally across the quad, to the opposite corner, staking each end. He repeats this process creating a cross of string on the lawn, giving him the centre point from where he starts the first circle. After each circle is complete he has to change the direction of the mower, going in the opposite direction to the previous circle, creating the amazing striped effect, stunning!
