    I agree with this. Deck pitch - 1/4" higher in the rear. High lifts give the best stripes. Fescue stripes best at 3.5 to 4.0 cut height.

    Thanks Richard! Unfortunately I cannot do anything to the lawn but cut it right now. The client only requests it being cut since the spring and nothing more hence the grass status.

    yup, the thicker the turf the better the stripe.

    You dont need a striping kit, just thick turf makes it really easy.
