Revolutionizing Lawn Care: The Benefits of Automowers

Remember the Jetson's and how we all wanted a Rosey to follow us around, clean up, make dinner, and more? With the invention of microwave dinners, cellphones, video calls, doorbell cameras, and Roombas I think it is safe to say that we have almost officially arrived in the Jetson era.

Years ago, the Roomba first made its way into many homes to vaccuum floors. Now you can get one that vacuums and mops and empties itself! Some very smart people came up with a similar concept but for yard maintenance. Although we don't have something that can automatically pull weeds, we can utilize a robotic automated mower to give us back some of our hours spent in the heat keeping up with the Jones' yard next door.

While we have begun utilizing these powerful machines in our business and for some of our clients, we have discovered at least six benefits of automowers that we'd like to share with you.

Automowers are:

1. Efficient

Because the automower mows more frequently, you'll have a even, clean, even, and presentable yard all week long. Also, the random mowing pattern of an automower is designed to cover the whole lawn without leaving streaks or tire marks from following a set path. When it detects a low battery, it will automatically return to the charging station to recharge.

2. Environmentally Friendly

While they aren’t always carbon-neutral, electric automowers can greatly reduce the environmental impact on your lawn and its immediate vicinity. 

3. Quiet

For homeowners that want a beautifully manicured lawn without ever having to see or hear the mower, this option is invaluable. With the easily programmable weekly timer function, it is possible to precisely schedule time intervals for Automower to work.

4. Promote a Healthy Lawn

Mulching your grass clippings can benefit your yard’s health. Finely mulched grass returns the nutrients from the blade tips to the soil, seeping in with the rain to deliver valuable nitrates directly to the roots.

5. Not Weather Dependent

An automower is water resistant and can mow the lawn even when it is raining. You can also use the weather timer setting to adjust mowing frequency based on the rate of grass growth. During periods of strong growth the mower will cut more frequently, and during periods of slow growth (i.e. dry or late season) the mower will spend less time mowing.

6. Built-in Theft Protection

To reduce risk of theft, an alarm sounds if the mower is lifted and can only be deactivated with your unique PIN code. Additionally, GPS enabled tracking allows for viewing your mower’s location at all times. 

There is one thing that is more precious than our family, it is the time that we have. When you utilize an automower, more time is what you receive.
