  1. Most of you have posted your stripes

    Now with dryer and hotter weather it’s time to see those Zoysia Stripes

    If you can!

  6. Here is an all Zoysia lawn

    Who said you can't stripe Zoysia

    This lawn was cut Thursday. Pic taken Sunday night

    Lawn does not have an irrigation system and no one there to water

    Till I started on this lawn TG/CL was destroying it
    No work done on it but fertilize and kept weeds sprayed

    And like I said on stripes 2001 no help striping. Just a box stock mower

    yeah lots of people can stripe Zoysia, and Bermuda. look at all the golf courses, they stripe like mad. heck, my old high school football field was Bermuda and it striped nicely with an old crusty JD 5 reeled mower. you can get anything to stripe with eough training. give me a month and i could have a crabgrass yard looking like 100 bucks.
