View Full Version : Bermuda stripes

07-30-2004, 09:23 AM
Everyone knows that striping warm season grasses is tough. Here is a Tifway 419 lawn I just mowed for the first time this week. It was topdressed using topsoil/compost and river sand earlier this month. Cut with my reel mower at 1 inch height.

Wow! I hate to admit this, but a fescue blade in that lawn would be considered a ....gulp..... weed! Aggghhhh! I said it!

Looks great - like a smooth carpet!

Good Work!

I couldn't help myself! I had to see what it would look like as fescue with a little roll to it with some hinoki's!

Looks good man! Glad to see that someone knows the proper mowing height for hybrid bermuda!

Put a little nitorgen and iron down and it will be greener than any fescue lawn. :)

Fescue Farmer,
what program did you use to add those bushes etc?

Pro Landscapes by Drafix Software.

It is pretty cool - I'm no computer guru - I have the 9.0 version.

Sometimes I think it is very limited, other times I think it is great.

I have found support to be a little hokey though......................

I would love to know all of this too. BUT i notice that he hasn't logged on for the past couple of months. UGH... I am willing to bet that it had a roller of some sort.
