Please Help !!!

I currently have a Toro Z4235, and 3- Toro Personnel Paces. How do I lay down the awesome stripes that ya'll do.
Where I am from no one does that and I think it would separate me from the rest.

Pictures or anything would be great.

Have a great day!!


Scott

Cut one way, then turn, cut back the other way. Make the straightest lines you can, practice makes perfect. Good luck!

Does anyone have a picture of the striping kit they have made for their push mowers? They don't sell them so I'm trying to figure out how to do it.

bermuda will stripe some what st Augustine not ... on a push mower you really won't get much in the way of stripes unless you put a heavy flap on the back of it... when golf courses mow their Bermuda fairways their mowers have solid rollers on them to really lay the grass down...but the purpose of the roller is to prevent the mower from scalping stripes are just an added benefit, depedning on your point of view...
