So in this case the way that this one spins, you're gonna walk right to left. You can see how it's spitting most of the grass clippings this way back into the lawn. That way you can keep your flowerbeds clean, it looks really good, and you don't have a lot of weeding to handle. So go ahead and try that when you're out there mowing the lawn this week.
