    I try to mow that way Randy, it looks nice, but now I'm glad to have a guide. Especially when it comes to striping around the trees! Thanks for posting the link!

    I did not want to pay almost 400 bucks to buy the kit to do it.

    Thanks for the link Randy! The best I can do is following the patterns with the power flow bagger on my JD 185. It's not bad, but we have a yard, not a lawn and no striping rollers or brushes.

    I don't as it's tough to stripe weeds.
    Dingeryote and LoneStranger like this.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I don't have the stripe kit, but I mow in that pattern. The stripes aren't as dark as they are in that picture, but still very noticeable. I use to get better stripes than those pictures with my old Simplicity and it's full length deck rollers.

    I try to mow that way...even with my humble push mower. Once I became conscience of the ability to stripe the lawn, I use it to help pass the time and foster my creative side. It is amazing how much "memory" your grass can get if you always mow it the same way and direction.

    The deck design of the Walker-brand mower that we have at work is very easy to use to stripe. No additional kit is needed.

    We do this everytime we mow as we have a Simplicity Broodmoor with full deck rollers. As Erik stated before, the Simplicity makes some beautiful stripes. I would say that every 3rd or 4th mowing I go the opposite to cut the grass from the other direction.
