Minimize cottage landscaping with a robotic mower

Assuming you’d like to do more than just yard work during your summer days at the cottage, a robotic mower is just the ticket to spending more time on the dock and less time mowing your lawn. A robotic mower, like Husqvarna’s Automower 220 AC, gives you a perfectly cut lawn while you sit back and relax. Plus, its intelligent mowing features can even make your lawn greener and healthier.

Aside from the obvious benefit of not having to spend your precious time at the cottage cutting grass, a robotic mower has some other cottage-friendly features:

• A robotic mower can operate 24-7, and some models can even operate in the rain.
• More frequent cuttings and shorter clippings mean better fertilizing and a greener lawn.
• The continuous mowing has a positive effect on grass growth, and will lead to the disappearance of moss from the lawn.
• A robotic mower’s battery-powered operation means no emissions.
• Some models, including Husqvarna’s Automower, are exceptionally quiet and won’t disturb your neighbours, even at night.
• In the case of the Automower, its large wheels allow it to run on uneven lawns and handle inclines of up to 35%.
