Start from the outside and work your way in.
Start from the outside of your lawn. Mow the outside parameter twice following the curves and tree lines. Once you have the outside set with two mows, it is time to move to the inside with straight lines. Every time you cut your lawn make sure to reverse the direction you start with the outside.
Circle the trees.
