    the effect of striping is helped a lot cutting higher
    as you are trying to get it to lean slightly.

    Scott, I am not sure if bermuda can be striped anyway, the impression that I get is that only cool season grasses can be striped, not warm season grasses (Bermuda, Centipede, Zoysia, St. Augustine, etc.....)

    Scott,Where I live all we cut is Zoysia, and Bermuda and yes it can be striped. I don't know how well a 21" mower will work but it can be done. This friday I'll post some Bermuda lawns on erics post named stripes 2001.
