  • Stripes!

    Playin around in my backyard and decided on doing this design. I didn't finish the design because while I was mowing, I noticed that my keys had apparently fallen out of my pocket, and that prompted a foot search for my keys that I still haven't found. Anyway, thought it looked cool.

    Nifty. That's a lot of extra work around the edges though.

    I don't use a roller or stripe kit so if I go over it again it usually erases the previous stripe and replaces it with the new direction.

            I have a book that is about striping, so some of my ideas come from that, but most of the time I just start mowing and do the design as it comes to me.

              I wish you had a way of taking aerial shots of the lawns. They would make for such amazing shots.

                    im using an ariens 1742 ZTR. i attached some thick pieces of rubber to the back of the deck that sweep over the grass so make it lay over and create the stripes.

                      What made you go with that versus other products that might be out there. Products that offer rollers or chains or others?

                        MONEY!!! haha, it cost me like $15 to buy some rubber at lowes and bolt it to the back of my deck. If I had $300 or so just laying around, i probably would have gotten a roller.

                          Here are some more stripes I did in my backyard the other night. Plain and simple, no elaborate designs this time. lol

                            I think that is brilliant. Why spend money on something when you can make it and have it just as effective. Very nice work. You should take some pics of the striper you made and how you attached it.
