    I'm new to the industry and I was wondering how I can stripe my lawns as well as my competition. All I mow with is two walk behind Honda HRX's and a John Deere walk behind when I have to.

    The lawns I mow look pretty good for one day then the stripes fade away...my competitors stripes last for a week or more,

    I assume I need to buy some kind of attachable roller for my mowers...Does anyone out there know what I need to get to make those perfect stripes???
    please help me!!!

    Theres alot of homemade striping kits you can look into on this site. As far as do you need one? No... If you have a good mower you should be able to adjust your blades to leave nice strips, I recall it being 1/4 inch down in front? Im not sure I have an exmark and it strips just fine without a kit, so I have never worried about it.
