Stay Sharp

A job that a lot of people neglect throughout the year is keeping the blades on the mower nice and sharp. By keeping the mower blades sharp it makes for a cleaner cut, and causes less stress to the grass allowing it to recover quickly, imagine the difference between a nice clean surgical cut versus a jagged cut from a steak knife, which would heal faster and which would have more chance of infection? 

If you have dull blades they will rip and pull at the grass and in extreme cases will leave little strings attached to the ends of grass blades, where its edges are frayed and damaged, that’s how you know you’re overdue for sharpening or replacing your blades!

It’s a relatively simple task, but it might take a few attempts to fully master the technique.
