Stripes with Toro 62" Z Master

I recently purchased a Toro Z Master and after looking at the pictures of the stripes in the Commercial Listing, I think I would like those in my yard. How do I get them. I have mostly fescue and white clover.

Go to my website by clicking on the blinking gif below and go to my striping page. It will tell you how to do it and show you how in the pictures. I hope this helps.

If there is grass mixed in with it, you can stripe it.
You can stripe a weed patch if you try hard enough.

I suppose you know that Toro makes a striping kit for your Zmaster, a roller that replaces the rear anti-scalpers. I am guessing that the roller hangs below the deck to lay the grass down - I wonder if the roller could scrape the ground when backing and turning, etc - anyone out there used one of these striping kits yet?

I can stripe clover with are 48" belt drive but if the yard is full of it the stripes are backwards. The dark stripes are when your mowing a way from where your looking and the light ones are coming towards you. I dont know why this happens but it happens on 2 of are yards

Are the high lift blades different than what came on the mower?
