    I have noticed a few lawns over the years that I think are outstanding simply because they are mowed, I assume, with a mower equiped with a striping kit. I think these lawns look as sharp as hell. What do you guys think? Do your customers want this feature? Do these lawns look cheesy (or other adjective) to you? Why don't more lawn care co's put out a comparitivly small amount of loot for such a big effect?

    the nicer the job the better you get noticed. Striping is one way of doing that. You can also bag every lawn and edge. the better the lawn looks the better your reputation will be. Also people will not mind paying a little more for a neater job.

    I have never ran into anyone who would pay more for this service.

    having done soccer fields in the past.... it's just part of the job.

    striping is a personal preferance to most. some times it's a MUST like Football fields. other than that I NEVER use a striping tool on homeowners....
