Default Stripe cut?

Ok I have ran into a grass that I have never seen in Fl before..The homeowner said it is bluegrass and he brought the seed from Wisconsin, from what I have read on Bluegrass it is not supposed to do well at all down here but that crap is THICK! The customer asked me if I stripe cut?

My question to you guys can you stripe this grass type? if so what is a good striper to use?

Also what grass types stripe well? I am interested in offering striping to some of my customers....We just dont see it down here. Could be a nitch...don't know

The only grass that gets striped down here is on a golf course LOL!

Any info would be helpfull.

That is a cooler season grass. I wonder why the customer went with that in Florida.

Do you have any type of stripe kits? A roller or chains or anything like that? I'd figure you should be able to stripe it.

I have found out the customer was wrong.... what he was calling Bluegrass was Empire Zoysia grass more common here but I havent seen it much.
