A stunning landscape usually comes with a lawn that matches it in grandeur. But maintaining a great big lawn takes time and effort that many don’t have to spare. A robotic lawnmower is more than just a convenience. Once you use one, you’ll think of it as nothing less than a necessity to keep your lawn trimmed perfectly – with zero effort on your part.
Benefits of Owning a Robotic Lawnmower
The first benefit is getting your weekend mornings off! Many robotic mowers have automatic timer settings that allow you to program them for specific days of the week. The internal clock tells the mower when to start working, and may even have a feature that lets it dock for charging automatically. Once you buy it and do the initial programming, it pretty much does the job without any more human intervention.
The second benefit is the amount of energy saved. These are usually electrical devices with electronic circuits telling them what to do. Therefore, they use much less energy than mowers that run on gasoline. The only energy you have to put in is the initial programming, where you insert pins into the perimeter of your yard so the robot knows where to stop and turn. After that, it’s pretty much on its own. It can negotiate larger objects such as trees and ornaments, and leaves your yard looking spruce and neat every time.
The third benefit is that of environmental impact. Because these are electrical gadgets, they don’t pollute the air like gas-run models tend to do. They’re also a lot less noisy so you won’t find yourself being rudely awakened on a snoozy Saturday morning by a combustion engine mower going at full tilt right underneath your bedroom window.
The fourth benefit is safety; most of the better models have object recognition built in as a feature, so if you have kids that leave their toys on the lawn, the blades will automatically shut off if the mower encounters them, keeping your blades and your kids’ toys safe from damage. Some also come with rain sensors that automatically shut down the unit when they sense rain. This prevents electrical damage as well as damage to your lawn. They’re also safe for the family dog who might just be sunning himself on the lawn when it’s mowing time.
There’s clearly no argument; robotic lawnmowers are better for you, the environment and the safety of your family. However, you may have to shell out a thousand dollars or more for one; advanced models may cost twice that. But, considering the fact that your time can be used more productively, it’s well worth the investment.
