    I've tried to stripe St. Augustine grass and nothing like the Pics I see on this site. Could some one explain exactly how you stripe Lawns ??? :confused: Thanks...

    :( Sorry Lou, St. Augustine doesn't stripe. You can howver get a light stripe on a healthy Bahai lawn.

    Thanks " yourlawnguy ", When I tried to stripe I do get sorta a stripe, you definitely see the tire marks, don't look too bad... Nice straight lines, don't last long though.. Thanks again...

    We don't get the oppurtunity to stripe very good down here in the south. The grass blades are just to wide, especially centipede and st aug., bermuda does ok. The only grass that I get to stripe is my own lawn, because it is rye and it is slowly dying, because of the heat.:cry: :cry: :cry:

    You might try using a proslide. I've heard nothing by rave reviews for the stripes they lay. I have no idea if anything at all will work on St. Augustine. Being from up north I've only cut that stuff once.
