    I've been noticing some of the pics various members posts. How did you get the diagonal lines. I read on here a few weeks ago to mow into the sun, the mow in the opposite direction. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mike.

    Most of the guys use steam rollers every other week...

    Doesn't that have adverse affects on soil compaction? I personally like drop spreader stripes...

    I hitch 3 of my dogs together and make 'em pee in a straight line. If you need wider stripes, use more dogs. :)

    Here's some awesome stripes from a well known well loved member who passed on earlier this year, EricELM was his lawnsite.com username, if you search the archives you will find many of his posts. His webpage shows some stripes that no one is likely to live upto. Click on lawn pictures for about 40 lawn stripe pics (large, will take awhile to load and you may need to hit refresh, he wasn't a computer geek really) also check out the striping page, it is a good beginner's guide to striping.


    Hope this helps,
    Eric (other Eric)
