    Most customers love the look our industry provides, of course their are those who prefer a more "Natural" look...anyway here is a video of a client's property using a striping effect...Is this performed with a striping KIT? check it out..Stripe Video

    People pay good money to have a nice green rich looking lawn.

    People then pay to have stripes on their lawn. Those stripes make half the lawn take on a lighter green color.

    That makes no sense to me. Plus the stripes take away the natural look of the land.

    I know and we get paid for that, meanwhile food prices at the grocery store are spiraling out of control but
    then it's not cheaper to farm your own land, so I'd have to say all in all it's a pretty crazy business.

    I know it's crazy what customers expect!...one thing i do know is that, as long as grass grows, we all have a job...

    People really do pay good money for this type of work. It never ceases to amaze when they ask if we can cut the other way..Checkerboard on the turf..ha ha

    You link to a stupid site with a link to an actual video. On the stupid page your link takes us, (I am going to guess this is your stupid site) you say that this is not done with a striping kit. So why are you asking if this is done with a striping kit? Since it seems you already know it is not. I think the whole reason for this thread was to get people to visit your stupid site. Let me know if I am wrong though.

    Not all mowers need a striping kit to stripe well. Also some guys mow in the same tracks every week because their mowers don't stripe well if they chose a new line. But this causes ruts. So what is the point of this thread anyway?
