See my pic in this thread:


Those stripes (the good ones) were done with My Exmark 36" on a non-irrigated lawn.

How do you get your exmark 36" to stripe like that? Does it have a striping kit? Just wondering because i also got one and it wont stripe at all. Thanks

Here is an all Zoysia lawn

Who said you can't stripe Zoysia

This lawn was cut Thursday. Pic taken Sunday night

Lawn does not have an irrigation system and no one there to water

Till I started on this lawn TG/CL was destroying it
No work done on it but fertilize and kept weeds sprayed

And like I said on stripes 2001 no help striping. Just a box stock mower

Zoysia lawns are a lighter green than fescue, but do stripe quite nice!!!!!!:D

Anyone got some to spare?

yeah lots of people can stripe Zoysia, and Bermuda. look at all the golf courses, they stripe like mad. heck, my old high school football field was Bermuda and it striped nicely with an old crusty JD 5 reeled mower. you can get anything to stripe with eough training. give me a month and i could have a crabgrass yard looking like 100 bucks.

c'mon down to KY, i will show you one of my "mostly" crabgrass, oxalis, plantain, and clover filled yards that stripes up pretty good.

It took a while but here they are!

First off...two pics of my lawn. I think it's Meyer and right now it ain't perfect. It was ignored the last 40 years but I'm working on it. Cut at 3'' with a Lazer 60''.


A shot from the roof...


Next up is a client's lawn. "Emerald" zoysia...I was told. Cut at 4".


Out of 30 accounts these are the only Zoyia I cut...the rest is mostly fescue, rye, bermuda, WEEDS, etc......

Sorry that they are 'fuzzy'...this is "Hi-Res" on a cheap Epsom PC550..:rolleyes:

Keep 'em coming!

Sorry V Smith can you put them under attached files i can't get them to come up


08-12-2001, 03:51 PM
Fixed. :cool:

Hey Eric where's yours.:D lol
We can't leave you out of this.

My lawn HAD lots of clover and plantain until recently...it's now on the road to recovery with all this rain we've been getting lately. Amazing what a little Spectracide "Weed Stop" in a backpack sprayer will do on zoysia. :)

Funny thing...the Exmark did stripe the weeds pretty good at 2 inches. :D

C'mon people...show your zoysia!

LGF, zoysia sounds like a disease. :)

Sorry, we don't have that up here or I'd be showing you. ;)

Sorry Eric you are missing out on this one

But you can come down here and help with the PGA in September

They have a lot of Zoyzia and Bent Grass at the County Club

I was asked to cut for the 2 week prior to the PGA
