The biggest grass mistake homeowners make is not keeping their lawn mower blades sharp. Dull mower blades can be spotted easy by all of the dents on the blade edge. A sharp blade will be smooth. Using a worn mower blade can leave your grass blades torn and susceptible to diseases. Sharp mower blades give you an even cut. Use a flat file to sharpen the blade. Or, you can evnen pull out your Dremel motor tool if you have on to speed up the sharpening.
