    OK, a total rookie question here. How do you make those stripes in a persons yard. Like they do at baseball stadiums? And, are there alot of requests for that type of thing? Thanks for letting me show my ignorance again.

    It's called a striping kit and most mowers can have one put on. Some customers love it and some do not, all depends on their taste. Go to a lawn mower dealer and ask for a striping kit.

    First of all, you do not need a stiping kit to put stripes in a yard. You can accomplish this by going back and forth with each pass while moving away from where you started. Some people may like the look of the stripes, but the reason i do them is so the grass is not cut in the same direction all the time. Do this by changing the pattern or direction of the stripes.
