I was born in the UK and moved to the US when I was 12, back in 1984. My father was in the paper machinery automation business. I used to be a truck (lorry) driver before becoming interested in turf grass care. Before my lawn was 3 inches tall and full of thatch, making it look dull and brown from my old mower mulching the clippings back in. My lawn is Kentucky Blue Grass (Poa pratensis), which is known to produce heavy thatch. The process to change it started with discovering Allett while looking at another brand. Taking 1/2 an inch off every week (twice a week mowing), until I was at 2 inches, as the rotary machine only has 1/2 inch increments for height adjustment. Before getting the Kensington 20H, I used a 34 inch zero turn mower. Some features I like on the Kensington are, the grass box out front so you know when it's full, how quiet its is compared to a rotary mower, the interchangeable cartridge system because you don't need to buy extra machines for each job and of course the way it stripes the lawn.
