It is a really easy machine to set up that will cut the lawn a few times a week keeping it in tip top condition with no lawn clippings to dispose of. The reviews are brilliant and definitely worth considering. To read more, you can find our full Flymo 1200R review here.

Why Choose A Robotic Mower
Reading reviews and watching videos of robot mowers may not make all of us jump up and rush out to buy one to manage the lawn and save us a lot of time. But in reality there are so many benefits to having one of these mowers that we thought we would list them to really get you thinking about how you can improve your home and lifestyle. The automatic mowers really are the future of lawn care and grass cutting offering features that conventional push mowers and tractor mowers cannot come close to competing with.
Below are some of the reasons why you should choose one, I think that there will be some big advantages for everyone! Buying the cheapest robotic lawn mower isn’t the best way to make your selection, so thinking a little more about what you need is wise.
Just think about how long it takes you to cut the lawn. You have to get the mower out of the shed or the garage then actually walk up and down the garden until it is done. A mid size lawn can easily take an hour and in the summer this needs doing twice a week to keep the lawn in good shape. Two hours just to cut the lawn is a lot of work for many people that have busy work and family lives, taking time out to manage the lawn means sacrificing time doing the things you enjoy.
A robot mower will take all of this hassle away and will cut the lawn for you while you are at work or in the evenings giving you much more time to concentrate on the fun things in life. Quite often the garden will become an even bigger job of the lawn isn’t cut regularly but with a robot mower it will do it whenever it is needed.
Lets face it a nasty old petrol mower is not an energy efficient piece of machinery. With the price of fuel quite high and inefficient cheap engines they are not the greenest things. Even a push along electric mower will still mean that you will cut some bits twice as you go backwards and forward over them.
The robot mower is a light and energy efficient invention that runs on very little power. It has a small motor that is more than powerful enough to do the job but is not a drain on the batteries so each cut will not cost you much and will also be a lot better for the environment. The sensors know which areas of the lawn it has cut and will make sure it goes over ever every bit as efficiently as possible. If you have solar panels that generate power during the day this can be used to charge the mower for a free charge and a very eco friendly lawn mower indeed.
If you have a large lawn that requires a tractor to cut it a large robot mower will really be super efficient in comparison. The weight of a tractor means the amount of fuel it uses to pull you and the mower around is large. The light robot mower will use the same amount of energy per square metre as a small lawn. Definite economies of scale!
Huge Space Saving
We’ve all experienced the nightmare of fitting the really awkward size of a push mower in the shed with the handle poking out and taking up loads of valuable space. The tractor mowers are even worse and require a whole shed or garage to house them. A robot mower is a small bit of kit that is not a great deal bigger then a medium size box and can be stored on a shelf or in the corner of a garage giving you back loads of space. The mower can even be left on the charge point and small garages can be bought to sit over the top of them. Be careful that someone doesn’t steal you mower if this is the case. With many house very limited for storage this is a large befit to a robotic mower that is overlooked but one that to many people may be the deciding factor in the purchase.
Peace And Quiet
On a weekend a lot of us want to sit out in the garden to get a nice bit of piece and quiet after a busy week at work. The reality is that the lawn will probably need cutting. The robot mowers have very quiet electric engines that will run along for hours with out making any noise and will not disturb you. You can be sat down having a cup of tea and reading a book while the mower silently cuts the lawn ready for you and the family to use later in the day.
Keep Your Garden Looking Great
There is nothing better then a freshly cut lawn to look out over when the sun is shining but this can take a lot of work. Often we let the lawn go and then the garden starts to look very tatty a bit of a mess. The robotic mowers will cut the lawn as many times in the week as is needed to keep it looking tip top. They will work in most weathers so the lawn can be kept in great condition all year round. No more looking out of the window in the winter to a horrible uncut lawn. The more frequently the lawn is cut the better it will look and the grass will all be very even in length with no nasty toughs. The robotic mower will definitely transform the look of your garden!
Keep The Lawn In Good Condition
The most important thing to do with your lawn to keep it in good condition is to keep it cut. This will control the weeds and not let them take hold and will keep the water from sitting on in the grass and on the soil and turning the lawn into a bog. Robot mowers will keep the lawn cut to the length you set which will help keep it healthy. They also mulch the grass which chops up the blades of grass into small chunks and drops it into the lawn which is a constant feed for the lawn. In a matter of no time your lawn will become a lot more healthy and will look a lot better.
Cut The Lawn When You Are Out
As well as being effortless to cut the lawn using a robotic mower you also don’t need to be around. The mower can be programmed to be cut whenever you like and can even be started from a smart phone app for some models. This means that the mower can run at convenient times for you when you are off doing other things. You don’t have to sit and watch it once you have got over the shock of how well it cuts the lawn.
As you can see the benefits are massive and can save you time, money and keep the garden in great condition. If cutting the lawn is an issue for you or it it time that you could do with getting back for other things we would strongly advise you to read some of the in depth reviews and improve your garden.
