When you purchase a robotic mower such as a Husqvarna Automower, size matters. It might not have been something you’ve given much thought to, but each of the mowers in the range is designed to work over a certain area, and if you pick a robotic mower designed to operate on a smaller lawn you’ll soon find that it’s struggling to keep up. Which installation kit is most suitable for you is also determined by the size and complexity of your lawn, so it really is important to know.
To help you make your decision (and to prevent you having to invest in a trundle wheel), Husqvarna have created the Automower Lawn Calculator which will help determine which Automower will be most suitable for your garden. This clever system uses Google Earth imagery, and allows you to map out your garden.
- Start by typing in your postcode and selecting from the drop down.
- Use the plus and minus icons on the right-hand side of screen to zoom in on your garden and then click the ‘I’ve found my lawn. Continue!’ button.
- Next you’ll need to click around the edges to mark out your lawn, and the Automower Lawn Calculator will work out how many square metres your garden is.
- Click done and Husqvarna will suggest which models will be most suitable. You can narrow down your choice further by letting them know how complex or open your lawn is, inputting information about the slopes in your garden, and by ticking a box if you only want to see Automowers which can be used with the Automower Connect app.
The suggested Automower models will show information about how much time they would need to cut your particular garden size, and how much of the time your lawn would be Automower-free. Key features are also listed, and you can even pop in your email address to be emailed the suggested models. Once done, come and see us or call 01603 458 916 for Norwich sales, or 01473 716 335 for Ipswich. We can arrange to come out and install your Automower for you too!
