    If every lawn displays same tip problem , change your blades out more often. Dull blades usually leave white tips though. Brown tips are can follow a fertilizer application and usually goes away with cutting.

    Good call. The point Im trying to make is maybe its a dull mower blade, maybe its not.

    Hey Meg Mo,

    Do you have a link? I do not see any sponsors links on my page of lawnsite.

    I change my blade every two days. I went back and double checked the number of lawns. It is more like between 40 and 50 lawns that I do before changing. I thought about going to every day of changing blades. It only take a few minutes each day.

    Funny you posted this. Talked to the customer today and she said it was fertilzed the morning I cut it. I was there late in the afternoon. The took the sign down.

    Well there you have it! Good call Dishboy, was not the blades at all. I would try to get two sets of blades and rotate every day if you are cutting 20 or so a day. Take care

    That's just it. I have plenty of blades. Three sets for each mower. I might go out and invest in another set so I have four. I guess it just freaked me out that this was really the first time I have seen this. Thanks for the input.

    I Had this same thing happen on some of my lawns last year in the spring
    talked to the guys at Lesco and found out that it was the grass bur-oil or something like that it was fine later on in the year. hope this will help.
