Technology has swept the world over the last 15 years. Whether it’s your smartphone, television or your broadband, technology has played a big part in your life. These advancements have had some great benefits. For example, instead of going out and buying a 50+ page newspaper, you can visit your favourite news site and read the articles that matter and interest you most.
We know gardening can be time consuming, costly and with the Irish weather, an absolute pain! Husqvarna have been researching and developing their Robotic Mower for over 23 years, making it one of the best in the industry. Throughout Europe, the Automower has been taking gardens by storm, due to all of its benefits. Who wants to waste precious hours during their weekends tediously cutting grass, spending money on fuel and wishing it would stay dry to get a cut in?
1. It saves you Time
It takes on average between 2 – 2 1/2 hours to cut a half acre lawn. What would you rather be doing in that time? The Husqvarna Automower will free up time for you to spend it on your family, hobbies or just relaxing. Once the Automower has been installed and the boundaries set in your garden it will do all the work. This intelligent machine is fully automatic and even knows when it is time to head back to the docking station to recharge. Unlike traditional lawnmowers the Automower only cuts small pieces of grass – just more often, these tiny shavings are barely visible ands will fall to the ground and decompose. They act as a natural fertiliser and save you the time emptying the grass box or raking up grass cuttings.
2. It’s Weatherproof
Well this is a godsend! especially in Ireland. It’s not every year that we will get continuous dry sunny weather but that’s not a problem for the Automower. This machine will give you perfect results in most weather conditions. Giving the same fantastic results whether it is wet or dry. What’s more is the Automower will work day or night and as its silent there will be no worrying about disturbing the neighbours.
3. It’s Environmentally Friendly
No more polluting the environment with petrol fumes. As the Automower is run on batteries there are no direct emissions and the actual energy consumption is very low.
With the grass clippings providing a natural fertiliser for your lawn you are feeding your lawn all natural goodness.
4. You will have a perfectly cut lawn
A perfectly cut lawn all year round and you won’t need to lift a finger. Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? But with the Husqvarna Automower that’s exactly what you will get.
By mowing your lawn in a seemingly random pattern, in various directions you will get a carpet-like lawn throughout your garden. No area will be left uncut, the whole lawn is covered including narrow passages, around obstacles such as trees or flower beds, uneven surfaces and slopes. Your lawn will be lush and green due to the natural fertiliser on your lawn from the clippings. It is recommended to complement the perfect finish of your lawn that you should strim the edges of your lawn that are outwith the boundary wire to achieve a perfect finish.
5. Money in your Pocket
There is no doubt that fuel pricing has gotten expensive over the years. With limited supplies, price hikes and high taxes, the cost of a litre of petrol will never drastically reduce again. But none of that will effect the Automower, and the costs associated with a petrol engine will never be compared to that of electric. The running costs for an Automower will vary depending on the model however from around only €15 per season for the electricity consumed compared to the average fill of petrol of between €8 and €15 per cut. The savings will soon add up. The servicing costs are considerably lower also. A battery will last up to 4 seasons (based on running the Automower 6 months of the year on an area of 800m2).
There are many benefits to investing in a Husqvarna Automower whether they are for lifestyle or financial gains. This machine is definitely a game-changer in lawncare. In this technological age the added extra of being able to control your Automower from a smart phone app really gives added convenience to the user.
