The ragged torn look will make your lawn look less appealing and if your blade is dull you might even tear whole tufts of grass out of the lawn itself. The ragged edges of torn grass will yellow and die to give your yard a less than green look. Dull mowings can result in damage to your grass that can even be confused for mold growth.
