Many lawns suffer from the high temperatures, especially in summer. Brown discoloration or even bare places often dominate areas that should normally be dense with lush green grass. Many garden owners accept this shortcoming with a shrug of the shoulders, since the path to the perfect lawn is supposedly associated with a ton of work. However, this does not have to be the case: a robotic lawnmower makes a valuable contribution to a rich and dense green lawn in your own garden.
A perfectly manicured lawn allows you to really show off your garden. To maintain this, it actually does not take much if you pay attention to a few things:
At first, this sounds like a lot of effort and work, but it can be reduced just by choosing the type of lawn. For example, there are robust and hard-wearing lawn mixtures that are suitable for gardens where children play, or ornamental lawns that grow particularly dense and can tolerate deep lawn divots. Be sure to look for a quality mix when purchasing your preferred lawn variety.
A robotic lawnmower takes a lot of the lawn care off you hands by doing the regular mowing all by itself. Furthermore, fertilizing is also significantly reduced by using a robotic lawnmower. You will only take care of thatching and watering the lawn.
Above all, it is important that the model fits your garden in terms of performance and cutting width. There are robots for lawns with less than 300 square meters up to 3,000 square meters and even more. The greater the specified area output, the faster the robot will work. On the other hand, not enough power can result in individual areas not being mowed frequently enough (about every 2 days). The result is different lengths of grass blades or an unclean cutting pattern.
Once programed, the robot regularly makes its rounds and permanently ensures an even lawn cut. This alone allows the lawn to grow more evenly and densely, as numerous shoots are formed.
It is important here to choose a cutting length that also suits the lawn mixture. While some ornamental lawn seeds allow cutting depths of 2-3 centimeters, a commercial lawn prefers a length of approx. 4-6 centimeters. In the shade, the blades may be as long as 8 centimeters. The ideal length is important so that the lawn can breathe well - but at the same time does not encourage the growth of weeds.
Since not every lawn is absolutely level, it is recommended to buy a robotic lawnmower with an oscillating suspended mowing deck. This way, the cut is made with the same length everywhere. The robot automatically compensates for unevenness and the cut is therefore, accurate and absolutely even.
If you want to save the maximum amount of work and do not want to manually trim the edges anymore, a model with an edge function is the right choice for you. Here, the blades protrude beyond the wheelbase, so that the blades are cut to the edges. Working with the lawn trimmer or lawn edge trimmer is thus considerably reduced or completely eliminated.
Since the robotic lawnmower only cuts off a few millimeters of the stalk tips each time, grass clippings can be left on the surface. These clippings decay within a short time and thus serve as a natural fertilizer. For you, this eliminates the need for regular fertilizing - which saves time and money.
An exception, however, is the first cut after winter. The blades have hardly grown over the winter, but the length is sufficient to avoid immediate decay. The layer of grass on the ground then prevents adequate ventilation, and the lawn underneath is put at risk. Therefore, it is advisable to remove the first cuttings manually - or alternatively to use another type of lawn mower with a collection bag.
If the stalk tips are cut off uncleanly during mowing, brown spots can form - the lawn will not be as lush overall as it would be with a clean cut. By regularly replacing the blades of a robotic lawnmower, you will be assured that the blades of grass are not simply torn off, but cleanly cut.
A lawn littered with mole mounds is a major annoyance for many garden owners. Regular use of a robotic mower disturbs underground animals and in turn, they are very likely move to a new territory. Thus, the problem takes care of itself and without the use of chemical aids.
When using the robotic lawnmower correctly, lawn care almost takes care of itself. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, it is nevertheless important to consider a few points when using the device:
A robotic lawnmower not only makes lawn care easier, but also makes a significant contribution to a beautiful, even and lush green lawn when operated properly.
