    Not the best looking stripes in the world, but not too bad. Just glad to be going full steam!

    Looks nice to me.:clapping:
    What kind of mower did you use?
    Do you only cut in that direction or do you alternate each time? looks like ruts are starting to form.

    Thanks! That's a JD 757 60 in stripe. That is the second cut on this particular yard, and i like to go two weeks at first to get the stripe put in good, so next week I will be putting a new stripe in another direction.

    Looks good man! It's even greener than that here this year! Just got in the 2nd cut on all my lawns, 3rd on about a dozen of them, in MARCH. Simply unheard of around here. Usually only have one cut on most in march, maybe 2 on some "high end" ones. Spring is here!

    I think you're seeing the darker tire stripe; otherwise sounds like the customer who comes out saying you only mowed half the yard :dancing:

    is that the standard stripe or do you have a striper on it?

    That's without a striper kit, but I have been debating on getting one put on it. Just wonder if it's worth that much money?

    In my opinion it already stripes nice i wouldnt add a striper, or if your looking for a deeper effect try to fab one up yourself to save some payup
