    At least you recognize the concept of striping. That is unheard of for some of our competition around here.

    Nice stripes. Looks better than some of the "Professionals" around here. You are probably the talk of the neighborhood. Good work..:drinkup:

    Looks great the striping but here in lower east mi that wont do it people want bigger lines.You can tell a home owner did it.

    Proenterprises - I think that the striper only fits 21" mowers or something close to it. I don't think it would work with a 26" mower but you could contact the company that makes it and double check.

    BrookLawn- Personally, I get much more satisfaction from doing the work myself and if people can tell that my stripes were done by a homeowner that only benefits me. That way I know they realize that I do all the work myself. If my lawn looks as good or better then the lawns done by professionals, then that reflects well on me.

    I would love to have the yard size to justify a larger mower to have wider stripes, but with my lot size my 21" Toro works great!

    Thanks again for all the comments!
