Default Lawn Stripping kits ya or na?

Hey Everyone

I was wondering what your take is on lawn stripping kits. Does it really make that much of a difference. I have a 60 inch Lazer z last years model... and was wondering if would increase the looks of my stripes but i want the ultimate look! any input would help.

Thx

I think first off, it depends on the type of grass you mow. Do you know if the grass you are working with would be able to be striped?

If so, what is your view on striped lawns? Do you like them or no?

Oh that looks fantastic! Why not experiment with some different striping devices? Maybe create a roller? Or have some chain links across the back the of your mower that drag on the lawn a bit?

You can buy a pre-made one but if you are handy, you can also make them as well.

Talking stripes

i have been looking on lone for a stripe kit i think i am going to make my own i know where a lot of old push mowers are i think the wheels will make good rollers so im going to try that out i also seen on the net you can use pvc pipe filled with sand or what ever you want to make it heavy what are some other ways to stripe beside these ? can u stripe by changing the height of the blade ? just a thought not sure i have never tried to lay stripes but layd plenty of strippers haha

I think the wheels might work out really well. Take some pictures of the process as you make it. I don't think changing the blade height alone will create a stripe, although a little longer grass should be easier to stripe than short grass.

Got me thinking, I also am fairly handy. Did a google search and found this. Think I am going to make a version of this:

I like that idea. I also have found some online that are just a rubber strip that hangs below the deck. I don't know if it works.

that looks great!
only problem with that lawn: on the left side there are two dark green stripes right next to each other. never go the same direction twice in a row....

I have heard the rollers work best
