Here are a few examples of my best work. I like being creative, and the numbers are for my birthdays. Let me know what you think.

it depends. On my own yard, I just go have fun. I usually charge customers extra, unless special circumstances warrant otherwise.

Nope, a very good customer's lawn, and it was done at their request.

Nice job on the circles! What mower did you use? factory striping kit or homemade? Good work.

I like that second one myself also.

How long did it take to go around in all those circles?

The mowing for the bulls-eye took a little over an hour. Then we touched it up to make it stand out a little more. It's a nice way to differentiate our business.

To answer an earlier question, the pattern was made with factory walk-behind dual hydro mowers. Sulkies were attached, which aided in the striping ability of the mower. No external attachments were present.

how is the three wheel rider. My dad still uses his on our lawn. I like them but dont really use it because my lawns are to small for a 61 inch.

Here are a few pics of my better work.

1 and 2 yes and the second set of pics very straight stripes

02-05-2005, 01:34 AM
The first 2 were good. The last ones seem like its just stuck there.

i havef no great pics of the equipment that did the striping. i can send some of other equipment i have, if you'd like. for the striping designs i used just an off-brand dual hydro walk behind with sulky, and have since expanded into bigger mowers. the three-wheel rider is a back-up machine for me; it's cut quality and stripe quality are not nearly what i see out of my walk behinds with sulkies. but it is certainly a nice machine!

in respose to the curved stripes above.....see my newest attachment. something i experimented with.

Nice work Hartlawn! You are very creative - love the last pic - I knew there were some fellow 'stripe benders' out there!

I love it! I've actually tried that one myself, but I never got it to look as good on my lawn as you have it in your pic....

The numbers were by far the hardest to do. Maybe not as catchy, but FAR more difficult than even the bulls-eye in terms of striping methods.

Do you have any more good ones?

I really lie those stripes. Did you use a stripping kit?
