    i like prostreetcamaro's the best so far.

    the others people have talked about are good but it's almost like they look too good. it gives the yard a "fake" or unnatural look to me. almost looks like astro-truf. what do i know. i'm from the south and we don't stripe down here where i live. :laugh:

    The first two are the two I would want to use if I make it to the poll. They are just different than back and forth, that's why I personally like them. The third is from a 30" Toro, just for fun. Nice work everyone!

    All of these are great, especially the culdesac, but the last is interesting. The lighter stripes have an almost transparent look to them.

    Also, I believe I can see your footprints in them.

    Well, here's a mediocre cell phone pic from a mediocre stand of Kentucky 31, but we don't have much cool season grass to stripe here in eastern NC:

    Second mowing of this 2013 season. First mow ran from lower right to upper left. Cut height at 3.25" and I have done the fertilizing treatments on this property for the last 1.5 yrs. I used a Toro Grandstand 60" with the toro brand striper. These stripes were done with a single pass. I hope to compare to the other fantastic photos submitted by the lawnsite members!
