When a Robot Replaces the Lawn Cutting Service

Video-When a Robot Replaces the Lawn Cutting Service

The increasing availability of robotic lawn mowers prompted this homeowner to ditch his lawn mowing service. This video examines whether the experience is worth it.

With the gardening season now in full bloom, one task most homeowners have to deal with is mowing the lawn. The choice has long been taking the time and effort to do it yourself, or shelling out sometimes steep money to hire a lawn mowing service.

In recent years, another choice has emerged: a robotic lawn mower. These machines, basically Roomba-type machines with blades, can be brought on Amazon, set up in just a few hours, and then put to work. The robotic lawn mower is part of the growing use of technology in gardening.
