So you're gonna do all that to make the lawn look good and not really care about the stripes? They do more for the overall appearance than about anything else you could do

I like stripes better than crop circles. Here's some from today in nearly dormant Fescue:

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

yep......

I don't share your opinion of the stripes. sure my mower stripes, I even have the stripe kit but I don't go to great lengths or spend extra time to make sure the stripes are perfect and go straight through objects and all that.
