Section 2: TransitionsAnchor: #i1002646
Wherever two areas requiring different mowing widths are adjacent, a smooth and gradual transition should be achieved to visually blend the two areas.
Examples: A transition would be required between:
- the designated strip mowing width and the greater width required around a sign
- an area that is mowed full width and a non-mow area
- the designated strip mowing width and the extra width required to maintain sight distances at a curve, driveway or intersection.
The rate of transition should be gradual enough to allow adequate sight distances for prevailing traffic conditions and also provide a smooth visual effect.
