As for the smaller commercial yards you are refering to (banks, store fronts, etc) a 21" is in most cases better than say a 60" ZTR because you wont disrupt the lawn as much turning around and maneuvering and in the end will make a cleaner appearance...thats just my opinion!!
All you northern states guys are so lucky to have the types of grass that will stripe. 85% of my customers have centipede that is mowed at 1-1/2 inches tall, light green and barely visible striping to the untrained eye. the few I have with St Augustine, look really sharp and lots of them notice it too. especially their neighbors who always want to know how I did that. PAY me $$$, make yours look the same way
