Default DIY PVC Lawn Striper

I see more and more people trying this. So I figure Ill show you how I did mine. The only mistake I made was making it not long enough. I made it so it rolls.

The after pictures would look better but my blades needed to be sharpened at the time.

I have full instructions on the webpage but most of it is common sense. The pictures are larger when clicked on.

I'm thinking of getting a 4" pvc pipe. Cutting it in down the middle and adding nails. Then slide it over this one. This would make a aerator. Just dont know if it will rip the turf.

I havent been able to get to many good pics with it raining 3xs a week. The grass has been so high the clippings cover the stripes.

Send that rain to St Louis....it's rained like 3 times in 25 days. Half my accounts have irrigation or they water their lawns with sprinklers so that's something.
