Spring lawn care check list

  • Time for your annual reminder to get a new blade for your lawnmower or sharpen the old one before the first cut. Blades less than razor-sharp tear the grass apart and make the lawn look awful.
  • Don’t even think about cutting the lawn if it’s wet. Wet grass cuts as badly as a dull blade.
  • If your old mower is, well
