How Robotic Lawn Mowers Could Revolutionise the Way We Garden

Robotic technology is everywhere, even in your back garden. One of the most popular lawnmowers on the market right now is the robot lawnmower.

In this blog post, we outline what a robot lawnmower is, how they work, and why they’re proving so popular.

What are robot mowers?

The robot mower is a self-cut lawn mower that saves you the task of tediously physically pushing (or driving) a traditional lawn mower up and down your garden.

These automated mowers can be simply set up and left to mow your entire lawn by themselves. What’s more, some models are equipped with a weather timer, which tells the mower how much to cut the lawn depending on a calculated grass-growth rate.

This might all sound well and good for a perfectly flat, small lawn. But what happens if your garden has a hill, is much larger or has lots of obstacles for the mower to manoeuvre?

Simply put, these mowers are smart, and there are numerous different models which have each been designed to tackle a specific type and size of lawn.

For example, if you have a small to medium sized garden with an incline of up to 40%, then the Husqvarna Automower 315x is designed specifically for your needs. If you have a larger, uneven garden the Husqvarna  Automower 420 can mow lawns up to a staggering 2200 square metres!

These statistics sound impressive, but how do you actually know which mower is right for your lawn size and type?

Are you meant to somehow measure every incline and the exact square footage of your garden?

There’s a simple and quick solution to exactly these questions. There are online automatic lawn calculators which can tell you exactly which models are suitable for your garden!

All you have to do it enter your postcode, find your garden, draw an outline indicating the periphery of your garden, then the site will use the information to assess exactly what robotic mowers are suitable for your space.

Why robot lawn mowers are popular

The quality and design of these machines means they’re able to produce the same results that gardeners can achieve with a manual lawn mower—without spending the time actually out in the garden cutting the lawn.

In today’s fast-paced society, tedious yet necessary chores like cutting the lawn which can be solved with a simple touch of a button are appealing.

With the robot mower, gone are the days of pulling a heavy lawnmower out of the shed only to realise you’re out of petrol. Gardeners can now wave goodbye to tripping over the extension lead as they move their mower down the bank.

With the robot mower, once it’s fully charged all you have to do is put it in the garden and turn it on. It will do the rest!
