Save Money and Help the Environment

    Fertilisation - Reduces the amount of lawn fertiliser needed because the clippings provide about 1/4 of a lawn's annual needs. Free-falling clippings are free food for your lawn. Grass clippings act as a natural fertiliser. When clippings decompose, they release their nutrients back into the lawn. They contain nitrogen (providing as much as a third of a lawn's total nitrogen needs), potassium and phosphorus, as well as lesser amounts of other essential plant nutrients. Since nutrients are returned to the soil, you don't need to purchase fertiliser as often.

    Water - Reduces the amount of water needed by lawns since the clippings are about 80 - 85% water. Grasscycling slows evaporation losses from the soil surface and conserves water. Most lawns need less water when grasscycling. 

    Help the Environment

    Grasscycling with Friendly Robotics Robomow® is a simple opportunity for every homeowner to do something good for the environment.

    Save landfill space - Grasscycling is a responsible environmental practice and an opportunity for all homeowners to reduce their waste and to save landfill space. Grass clippings add 20% to 50% to the volume of residential waste between the months of March and September.

    Save energy resources - By using Friendly Robotics Robomow® you help to save energy resources by eliminating the need to haul grass clippings to distant disposal sites. Grasscycling enhances lawn tolerance to drought, slows evaporation losses from the soil surface, and conserves water. Reducing fertiliser and water usage means less runoff from your lawn that can lead to surface and groundwater pollution.

    Save air - Most of us don't think of garden equipment as causing much air pollution, but the small engines found in lawn mowers are actually a significant source of smog. Garden equipment engines emit high levels of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides, producing up to 5% of the nation's air pollution. A conventional lawn mower produces as much pollution in one hour as 40 late model cars.

    Reduce noise level – Friendly Robotics Robomow® noise level is significantly lower than a conventional lawn mower, enabling you to operate it in any hour you want without disturbing the neighbours. 

    So what's the solution? Friendly Robotics Robomow® is battery-driven and can run for three hours between charges. It easy to start and requires no petrol, oil, tune-ups or spark plugs, making them cheap to maintain and avoiding unnecessary pollution.
