    Promo,

    What are the lawn conditions like, soil type, fert apps, and other treatments. It looks really great and I would love to at least try to get my lawn up to par the that pic. My lawn has dallas grass and is pretty thin compared to what you have there. If I can get mine that thick I know it would take care of the weed problems.

    I will be starting a part time lawn care company in New Braunfels, tx this coming season. I am looking at a John Deere 21 inch JS63 lawn mower. The Lawn Mower will be used on small residential lots 50 x 100. I would like to get some stripes on some of these lawns if possible. Think it can happen with only a 21 inch mower? Also what I hear is John Deere push mower. Any Comments?

    thank you

    William

    I have made some light stripes with my JD14sb. It is really hard to do on st. aug. but it can work if you repeat the same pattern every time. Bermuda on the other hand will not stripe.
