    How bad can you burn a lawn with dull blades? Can it look like it was sprayed with round-up? This yard has an almost chemical burn look on over half of it. It almost appears a little red. Can this be from dull blades?

    are the grass tips shredded or do they look fairly clean cut? That'd probably tell you.

    you can tell when grass has been cut with a dull blade. it flays the ends of the grass and it the grass blades look shreaded. it will have the appearance of burn or sick looking grass.
