Do you guys charge an extra service for striping or do you just do it all the time?
no, not an extra just something we do.
Wasn't sure. Kinda thinking some may use it as like a decorative charge or something.
Most mowers will leave a "natural" stripe. Also, it depends on the type of grass the homeowner has.
I used that name B&D Lawn Care last year, LOL
now E-Z Green
sorry, actually it was B&D Lawns
No, I don't charge extra. I don't see why you would need to because the mowers do it already, like someone said, plus I don't have to change the way I mow in order to stripe.
Not much for originallity here. I just took mine and the ol' lady's initials and voila.
As far as the natural stripe, yeah my Exmark leaves a pretty good one but I was kinda thinking of adding a lil something. Do ya'll ever get any extra business from making someone's yard stand out w/ stripes?
that's a good question.
I thought about it, and wondered if the extra equipment cost, plus maintenence, plus whether the rollers would be a nusance or be a trailer issue, etc... (more moving parts) if I would actually get more business? I don't think so. But it might be fun to have my stripes look even better.
A lot of people around here don't stripe. I use it as a selling technique. It dresses up a house and most people like it more than just cut grass.
