The key to achieving a clean cut each time you run the mower over your lawn is to have sharp lawnmower blades, and ideally you should be sharpening the blade on your mower twice during the main cutting season.

Whatever your DIY skill level, by following the advice in this guide, you’ll be able to ensure your mower’s blade is perfectly sharp and the cut of your lawn precise and clean.

Why Should You Sharpen Your Blade:

Over time as a result of general usage, the blade on your lawnmower can become blunt. If it is subjected to contact with stones, twigs or other debris the blade can also become dented and damaged.

Sharpening your lawnmower blade can easily be done at home – whatever our DIY skill level – by following the advice outlined in this guide.
