    Today I was bored so I decided to have some fun with striping my lawn and trying to have it look like a baseball field. Striping is very uncommon in these areas( never seen it except on sports fields) so I thought I d make my lawn stand out. Anyways, I only have a 21 inch mower so I made my own striping kit. I ended using my old Toro mower( homeowners model now i have a toro commercial) The self propel is broken which sucks but I ended up putting a bagger on and letting it fill up all the way, then I put a 20 pound bag of dirt on the bagger making it drag the ground. This was very heavy to push around my whole lawn and pretty weird set up but it actually worked. My neighbor thought I was nuts for wanting to do this in my free time, but now my lawn actually looks like a baseball field. Just thought I would share the amount of work I m willing to go through to have the nicest lawn in the neighborhood.
