Sharp Blades, Healthy Lawn - Or Why You Need to Keep Sharp Mower Blades

By Richey Plemons from Plemons Lawn and Landscape

Hi there guys, Richey Plemons of Plemons Lawn and Landscape. So today I want to talk to you about the benefits of keeping sharp mower blades.

Sure, you might think I'm making an obvious statement - and I am! - but there's more than just the obvious benefit to grass.

To recap some areas to manage better:

  • Compare your mower blades to the razors you use on your face when shaving - would you use blunt blades?

  • Poorly kept blades leave you more susceptible to disease

  • Replace your blades every 8-10 hours to keep balanced and sharp

  • When maintaining your blades, make sure they're balanced properly to keep your mower running in peak condition

I hope this video helps, and keep these blades sharp!
