What is a robotic lawn mower?
The latest technology in the lawn care industry, a robotic lawn mower is an autonomous robot that is responsible for cutting grass. This technology requires the user to set up a border wire of their property that defines the area that needs to be cut. The wire helps the robot to locate the areas of grass within the lawn that need to be mowed as well as locate the recharging dock. Robotic lawn mowers first entered production in 1995 and can now handle several acres if needed. They are meant to be completely autonomous, and some now work with voice control when connected to your Amazon Echo or Google Home device.

Will the Robotic lawn mower mow all the way to the edges of my yard?
A robotic lawn mower uses a buried wire to navigate the edges of your lawn to ensure a clean cut in any area you need mowed. These mowers are designed to overlap the wire to ensure that all of the grass is cut, however you will still need to trim in areas where the grass grows along a wall. This trimming is needed because the robotic mowing blades are recesses from the edge of the automated mower by about three inches.
How long does it take for a robotic mower to cut my grass?
Every model is made for different size lawns, so it depends on which one you purchase. All robotic mowers are meant to cut your lawn several times per week in order to keep your grass healthier.
