Details On “How Robotic Automated Lawn Mowers Work”

Jordan: Today I’m with Tiger Palafox from Mission Hills Nursery who’s going to introduce us to the Husqvarna Automower! If you have a lawn, and you have to mow it, this is the greatest tool to learn about right now.

Tiger: Isn’t it so awesome?

Jordan: So how does it work, what is it?

Tiger: Alright, well let’s first talk on the safety of it, because that’s the biggest question is that this is a robotic lawn mower that’s mowing your lawn whenever you want it to. It can be middle of the day, middle of the night. You program it and it will mow during that time.

Jordan: On it’s own, without you having to be there to do it. 

Tiger: Exactly. 

Jordan: That’s the key. 

Tiger: Mine mows from 12:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m., while I’m asleep. 

Jordan: Wow. 

Tiger: It’s awesome. Yeah, but the safety aspect of it is that it’s got a blade underneath which isn’t actually a blade. They’re little razors, and you can’t even see them poking out. If you put your finger down here, you can kind of feel them. They spin out and they cut just a little bit of lawn every time, and there’s a protective sheet on it as well. So even if there was anything cut it’s just a razor cut, it’s not a giant spinning blade, very dangerous or anything like that. 

Jordan: So as this is moving around the lawn, say a kid’s toy is out or something, it’s just going to kind of bump it, and redirect. 

Tiger: Redirect, you know, a kid trying to lift it up, play with it, it’ll redirect, it’ll stop the blade from spinning. It’s very very safe. They put this in public areas so it’s very safe to use.

Jordan: Very safe. So it has a docking station so it charges. So that’s kind of how it works.

Tiger: Yeah, and then from that docking station, we install this wire. Now, we can set this on the surface of the ground or we can bury it about an inch below the surface. 

Jordan: Okay.

Tiger: And this is like one of those invisible dog fences that basically the mower now knows where to go and where not to go.

Jordan: And it can’t go outside of this invisible fence basically ?

Tiger: Correct, yeah. And so it just stays right there, mows a random pattern. You know lawns respond really well to random pattern mowing, so it’s important. You’re not going to get those nice lines through your lawn like a normal mower will do it, but it’s very healthy for the lawn to have that random pattern.

Jordan: And there’s other benefits. 

Tiger: Yeah, because it’s mowing continuously, this isn’t like a once a week thing, this is kind of a daily thing that happens. It cuts just a little bit of grass which then falls into the lawn, so it’s mulching. The mulching aspect helps retain water, helps give it fertilizer. Also, because you’re constantly cutting the lawn, there’s no weeds that become flowers which then seeds go into the lawn and then the weeds just keep redeveloping after that. 

Jordan: It’s going to look beautiful and consistent all year long. You can learn more about the Husqvarna Automower at Mission Hills Nursery. Call 619-500-9474. You can find Mission Hills Nursery and the Automower along with other top pros at “ApprovedHomePros.com”
