    Forgive my ignorance, but what is the purpose of the striping? I have seen it done in certain locations, and always wondered, "why"? Now I have someone that I can ask.

    Neat that you found a use for the old springs!

    Actually so do I. Our lawn is by far not lawn stripe worthy.

    I cannot stripe my lawn. You have got to mow in straight lines to make it look good and that is not me. I am too easily distracted by everything in the world and when I come back to reality I am way off line with my mowing. Striping the lawn would let everyone know how easily I am distracted. They may have free reign to rob my house by just releasing a squirrel in my yard and I wouldn't even know it.

    How about a close up of the dolly under your loader in the background of your picture? I'm trying to decide how to build one, and yours looks good!
