    Sorry, Watching Harry Potter with the daughter, and I couldn't help but notice the NEAT striping on the quidditch field :)

    Man, some of those stripes appear to be 40' wide! Must be some mower they used! And they're straight as an arrow, with striping right to the stands... Wow! I wish I could do that, I can't seem to get rid of the lack of striping where I turn around!

    :p Gotta love computer animation!

    I just bought the book about striping. There's more to it than just mowing with a rotary mower. Sometimes they use greens mowers, sometimes they use a roller after they mow. It's a great book and I recommend it.

    That's the one. Great book isn't it? There are AWSOME photos of very intricate striping in this book.

    No. It takes you thru the whole lawn care process and then at the end it shows how to make and stripes and what it looks like at the end.
