|Lawnmower Tune-up Tips
If, after mowing, you discovered later that what was once a green and beautiful lawn became a bright white patch of something else, read on. A dull lawnmower blade is the culprit.
When grass is torn by a dull lawnmower blade...instead of cleanly cut with a sharp one...the result is frayed edges of grass that dry out and turn white. It's like the difference between a slice with a surgeon's scalpel and a rip with Captain Hook's claw. Besides the resultant bad coloring, each torn blade of grass means you've a lawn susceptible to disease...kind of like what would happen if you had an open wound.
