Section 2: Transitions

Anchor: #i1002646

When Required

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.
