Anyone who has seen the latest robotic lawn mowers in operation cannot help but be impressed with how far the technology has progressed over the past few years. Watching one of these silent workers as it automatically cuts any size lawn is really fun. Most people who see one in operation for the first time are amazed at how well the lawn is looked after and find it hard to believe that it is all done automatically. Everyone who has a lawn wants it to look immaculate. However in order to achieve that it normally involves a lot of work. This means spending a lot of time each week working with your present gas powered or other type of lawn mower using up your precious spare time over the weekend. Just imagine being able to enjoy every weekend playing your favorite sport taking the family out having a BBQ or just lazing around the pool and still have your lawn looking better than ever. It you hate wasting time regularly cutting the lawn then a robot lawn mower is ideal for you.
LawnBotts are quieter (mowing at night is not a problem) flashier and have more high-end options. They mow faster than RoboMowers and can handle a steeper grade. They are designed to mow more often and so take off the tips of the grass effectively mulching your lawn. Most owners really love their robotic mowers often giving them names decorating them or their docking stations and chatting about them in forums. They rave about how even if they were spending more money than they would with their gas or even a reel mower the convenience alone is worth the price tag.
Each yard is unique and different yards require different lawn mowing strategies. Although most homeowners use a normal ride on lawn mower tractor to cut their grass there is another type that is gaining in popularity. Zero turn ride on lawn mowers can work great for both homeowners and for landscape businesses. Here is a guide to help you decide if a zero turn mower is right for you. Zero turn lawnmowers work like a front-end loader or a Bobcat. The rear wheels can turn in separate directions allowing the machine to turn completely around without moving forward or backward.
Robotic lawn mowers are not maintenance free and most owners mentioned that one can expect to spend between $250-$300 per year on upkeep. Most of this maintenance is performed by the owner therefore the robots are designed for easy exchange of parts. Also unless your lawn has clear edges there will likely still be a little trimming that will need to be done for example in the areas around trees or along fences if the robot cant get as close as it needs. There are 2 main brands of robotic lawn mowers in the US and Canada: the LawnBott and the RoboMower. Both makes and models provide a beautifully cut lawn and contribute to its health with frequent mowings mulching systems and random mow patterns.
