No kidding, that was the funnest part about mowing back home. But most people think that the grass down here won't stripe. Most of it will if you do it right. I had to make my own striping kit to put on my mower to make it happen but i can lay down some nice stripes. But bermuda is grown down here like everything is a football field. Unless you get one of the nice hybrids, common bermuda is just plain ugly in my opinion.
