As the warmer months draw ever closer, many of us will be tackling the time-consuming task of keeping our lawn a suitable length.

However, there's an efficient alternative that can free up your time, allow you to spend your summer doing the things you love, and ensure your garden remains looking its best. The Husqvarna Automower® Range offers an array of advantages over more traditional models, including zero carbon emissions, adjustable features and a simple, elegant design. 

To help us learn more, we chat with Colin McIntyre, branch manager at the Tallis Amos Group in Evesham. He talks us through the benefits of owning an Automower® robotic lawn mower.

1. Easy to install

For anyone worried about operating a complicated piece of technology, you’ll be pleased to know that these new models are very intuitive. All that’s required during the installation process is to set up the charging station, charge the battery, lay the boundary cable and guide wire, then you’re all set. 

“The simplicity of the Husqvarna Automower® Range makes a real difference when you’re setting it up and whilst it’s working,” Colin explains. “For any adjustments that need to be made, you can download the app to your phone and do them manually. Depending on your preference, you can either carry out the installation process yourself or have specialists handle it before you receive your mower.” 

2. A smart, hassle-free mower

Rather than having to go over every inch of your garden several times, the robotic mower memorises the layout of your lawn within the parameters of the boundary cable. Motion sensors ensure Automower® robotic lawn mowers do not damage themselves on trees or other solid objects within your garden. “They can handle uneven terrain, self-analyse its battery life and even recharge itself to continue cutting the grass. They demand very little assistance and maintenance from the owner,” Colin says.

The machine is relatively quiet, meaning that you can have the mower running in the background without disturbing you or your neighbours. Many of the models have a built-in GPS and remote connectivity, making them incredibly self-reliant and enabling them to cover every area within the boundary cable that you have laid out.

3. Long-lasting and resilient

With a long-life battery and the ability to tackle the most challenging terrain, robotic mowers are a great investment. For optimal performance and to ensure your robotic mower lasts for many years, it's best to clean the blades regularly, replace them every other month, and safely store your mower throughout the winter months.

Colin says: “I've owned a Husqvarna Automower® robotic lawn mower for about five years and it hasn’t missed a beat. The battery life is extremely long-lasting and energy-efficient. You can also manually adjust the cutting height so that it can take care of longer grass if need be. It’s a tough mower that can handle plenty of challenges!” 

4. A sustainable option for the future

One of the most important aspects of these modern lawnmowers is their tiny environmental footprint, particularly compared to older models. There’s no need to use petrol or any other fuel besides electricity, which not only means there are no carbon emissions, but their energy consumption is also remarkably low – requiring less than a 60W light bulb.

“Robotic mowers are an excellent choice if you’re concerned about the emissions created by conventional lawnmowers that run on fossil fuels,” Colin says. “There are several innovations to these mowers that have a real, positive impact on the environment and your garden. The mower's fine clippings can also be recycled and used as fertiliser for your lawn."

5. Giving you back your free time

Alongside all the new features and environmental benefits that the Husqvarna Automower® Range provides, perhaps the biggest benefit to your lifestyle is the extra time it gives you to relax. The autonomy and quiet efficiency of a robot lawnmower will tick one more chore from your to-do list, meaning you can sit back, relax and enjoy a freshly trimmed lawn, all summer long.
