Many home gardeners have taken an interest in automowers over the past few years, and with their capabilities increasing and prices dropping, it’s easy to see why. There can be many advantages to automowers over conventional mowers, but this is usually on a case by case basis — while an automower might be ideal for one gardener’s home and lifestyle, it may not be the best choice for another.
There are a number of important considerations to bear in mind when looking into the option of buying an automower, including your budget and the size and complexity of your yard. For many homeowners, an automower, like our Husqvarna 105 Automower is an outstanding investment while others may find it better to opt for a ride-on or push lawn mower. It really depends on your situation and your personal preferences. If you’re interested in automowers, here are some of the benefits you have to look forward to:
This is a big benefit for busy homeowners, however, many people find manually mowing the lawn on the weekend immensely satisfying, so it really comes down to you and how you feel about mowing! If you’re looking to free up time, perhaps so you can spend more time doing other things in the garden or simply because you’re busy with family and work, an automower could be ideal for you by freeing up time so that you can focus on other things.
Mowing is great exercise (especially with a push mower) but some of us struggle with the physicality of mowing, making automowers a great option. For people who’ve undergone surgery or are getting on in life, the opportunity to automate the mowing and enjoy a beautiful lawn with minimal effort is one that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Another great benefit to automowers like the Husqvarna Automower® is that they’re so much quieter than a conventional mower. In fact, they’re so quiet, you can even set them to work at night and wake up to a freshly mowed lawn! While modern mowers are much quieter than they used to be, they’re still noisy in comparison to an automower. As automowers are battery-powered not petrol-powered, they’re not only significantly quieter than conventional ride-on and push lawn mowers, they’re also cleaner, emit far less pollution and are better for the environment, further making them a great choice.
Great for Lawns
Another big benefit to high-quality automowers like the Husqvarna Automower® is that they’re great for lawns. Not only do they cut the grass evenly and leave them looking fantastic, but as they skim across the lawn and cut the blades when they’re at their most tender, they’re gentler and provide more nutrition for the lawn. This means the grass experiences less shock than with conventional mowing, is healthier, thicker and stronger, and looks great all year round.
