    I'm using a lazer HP 2352 with a striping kit. Dwost your strips look great to. My lawns only 8 weeks old. I hope I can keep it looking that way.

    JarrodsDad, welcome to LS. To answer your questions, quite simply they provide no benefit to the lawn other than the appearance. They are free, unless you price out the extras to help with definition. If you look at a commercially cut lawn (or in my case, one cut with a commercial mower) you're more likely than not will see them. There are things you can do such as rollers, chains, double blades, deck pitch, etc... that will enhance the stripping effect and provide a professional, manicured appearance. Some people don't care for them, however if you do a search on this site, you will be reading for days on how to do it and see some amazing patterns. Enjoy!!
