Q: Do robots work? A: Yes.

(Here’s some proof.)

Q:
Are the robots safe for pets and kids?

A:

Yes, they’re absolutely safe around kids and pets. There have been over a million robot mowers sold in Europe over the past 10 years, and the safety record has been remarkable. Here’s why: They have sensors that make them stop and turn around when bumping into something. If they’re picked up while mowing, the blades will stop in less than a second. They have a 3-inch barrier that prevents fingers and toes from reaching the blades while operating. But it is important to remember THESE ARE NOT TOYS. Please be cautious and make sure children do not play with the mowers.

Q:
What happens if the robot gets stolen?

A:

Don’t worry. Your robot is fully insured. Plus: Each unit has a GPS tracking device on it so they can be easily found, and thieves are informed of the tracking capabilities via a warning label on the mower. Also, we’re immediately notified if the robot leaves your property, and they’re automatically disabled once removed from their designated lawn.

Q:
Can the robots cross sidewalks, driveways, and rocky areas?

A:

Yes. Sidewalks, driveways, and bumpy terrain are not an issue. If there’s a lip higher than 2-inches, we’ll choose a narrow area and level the ground in that area slightly to allow the robot to cross. The robot will bounce off of larger boulders and drive across bumpy rocks, but testing will need to be done during installation to make sure.

Q:
Can it get past our fence gate and mow the backyard?

A:

Yes. If you don’t want to carry the robot between front and back yards, we have a convenient, patented small “robot door” technology that allows the robot to automatically pass through the fence between front and back yards. After it unlocks to pass through, it will lock again so that pets and kids are safe when the robot is not in use.

Q:
Can the mowers handle dog poop and other pet waste?

A:

In general, the mowers are very compatible around pets, and a small amount of pet waste is not a problem. But if too much builds up on the wheels or around the blades, the mower may lose traction. So, we ask pet owners to regularly clear their yard.

Q:
What happens to the grass clippings?

A:

Because the mower is regularly cutting your lawn, it cuts just a small bit of the grass blade each time. These bits of grass easily fall back down to the soil where they decompose and provide fertilizer-like nutrients to the roots—resulting in a much greener and healthier lawn.

Q:
Does the robot mower live at my home?

A:

We install a base station at your home, where the robot lives while mowing your property. Robin handles all the programming and maintenance so you don’t need to worry about a thing. The robot will mow on its programmed schedule and then return to its base for charging.

Q:
Do the mowers mow in straight lines or in a random pattern?

A:

They mow the perimeter of the lawn in a straight pattern, but then mow randomly across the yard. Every portion of the lawn will be mowed, and your lawn will always look freshly mowed.

Q:
Can the robot handle large hills?

A:

Our standard robot can handle hills up to a 30 degree angle.

Q:
Can the mowers handle leaves and sticks from trees?

A:

Yes, the mowers have no problem mowing through leaves that have fallen from trees. In fact, they do a great job mulching both them and small sticks. During heav y leaf fall seasons, it may be necessary to request a full leaf cleanup service from our crews. Larger sticks will just be pushed out of the way by the mower.

Q:
Can the cutting height be adjusted?

A:

Our mowers are able to cut from about 1.25 to 3.5 inches. It can be adjusted manually, like a traditional mower.

Q:
How does rain affect the mower?

A:

The robots have a rain sensor that delays the start time if they sense rain or operating sprinklers. They work well in the rain thanks to their light weight nature, but it’s better to wait. The robots are also able to drive through as much as 2 inches of standing water.

Here are some additional things.

  • Why wouldn’t I just buy a robot rather than sign up for a service?
  • When you lease a robot from us, the cost is lower than all other options. It includes pro installation and regular maintenance. It comes with GPS tracking and theft insurance. When you buy a robot mower, it costs anywhere from $1,600 to $3,500. It requires you to install it yourself, including tunneling under sidewalks and driveways. You have to purchase a wire-signal tool to find/repair wire breaks (a common issue). Also, you bear the risk of theft.
  • How much does the robot mowing service cost?
  • Enter your address on our homepage to get an instant price. If you choose our Silver Level service, you’ll get a mower, regular maintenance, and theft insurance. For the Gold Level, we’ll add edging and trimming. For Platinum, you’ll get all of this plus bed weeding and shrub trimming.
  • What size lawn can a robot handle?
  • A single standard robot can handle properties up to .75 acre (.5 acre of grass). For larger properties, we use two or more robots.
  • Can this equipment be used on commercial properties?
  • Yes, enter your address on our homepage to get an instant quote.
  • Do I have to pay for the service during the winter?
  • During the winter months, customers have the option of pausing their service until the grass starts growing again. For some areas of the country, we offer free rye grass planting if you’d like a lush winter lawn.
  • Can we select a time for the mower to run to make sure our pets are inside?
  • Yes, we can program the mower to run during specific days and times to avoid pets and irrigation systems. The robots are even quiet enough to run at night.
  • Under the Gold package, what is included in “edging and trimming”?
  • This includes all grass along sidewalks, driveways, flower beds, and around trees and fence lines.
