Do you have any big lawns that would allow you to really get creative with striping?

Hey Rick,
How long does the striping effect last? Does the grass need to be damp? Dry? I've never done this but would like to try it.

Steve,

I wish I had a bigger lawn but no. Maybe next year. I plan on alot of door to door with pictures of lawns and testimonials maybe. I wonder if I send out christmas cards and ask for them to return comments about the service they recieved?


Totally Green,

The stripes last all summer once you get a few cuts in as long as you mow weekly. If it is nicer grass the effect is waaay better.

That is a good question. What is the best way to get testimonials?

Maybe you could just send out a letter explaining you would like to get a few testimonials from your customers and if they had any you could you to send you back say a pre-printed and stamped postcard? Would that help?

Cool never needed a striper.

When i cut lawns that are growing, and are healthy the lawn looks striped from just the mowing. When i mow i go back and forth in straight lines not round and round. It automatically leaves the stripes. One thing i don't do is, when i'm done the lawn, go right through the middle of the freshly mowed area. I go around the outside edge. I've seen some rookies screw up the striped by goin right across the middle of the lawn. Looks very bad.

lol yeah I see that too....I had to get on my brother about it once. When your done it is good to take a lap around the lawn to clean up the edge from the marks of turning around.

Justin,

Its not a bad deal especially if you have an old mower....thats what I made my brackets out of(the old mower handle).
