    Everyone knows that striping warm season grasses is tough. Here is a Tifway 419 lawn I just mowed for the first time this week. It was topdressed using topsoil/compost and river sand earlier this month. Cut with my reel mower at 1 inch height.

    TurfUnlimited,

    Wow! I hate to admit this, but a fescue blade in that lawn would be considered a ....gulp..... weed! Aggghhhh! I said it!

    Looks great - like a smooth carpet!

    Good Work!

    TufUnlimited,

    I couldn't help myself! I had to see what it would look like as fescue with a little roll to it with some hinoki's!

    Looks good man! Glad to see that someone knows the proper mowing height for hybrid bermuda!

    Put a little nitorgen and iron down and it will be greener than any fescue lawn. :)

    Pro Landscapes by Drafix Software.

    It is pretty cool - I'm no computer guru - I have the 9.0 version.

    Sometimes I think it is very limited, other times I think it is great.

    I have found support to be a little hokey though......................
