Tips & Tricks

Keep your mower blade sharp to get the best results from each mowing.

A sharp blade cuts grass cleanly, while a dull blade tears grass, creating a jagged, uneven edge. These tears create openings for pests and diseases to enter grass blades. A lawn that has been cut with a dull blade develops a whitish or brown hue as the tips of individual grass blades die back. Make sure you get your mower blade sharpened before the mowing season, here at Sims we can offer a blade sharpening service while you wait for as little as £7.20, better yet, get your mower serviced during the winter months and benefit from our annual 10% off winter service offer and have your machine ready for the spring season – call us for details.
