Mastering your Automower – Your guide to the perfect lawn

Essential Do’s and Don’ts for Effortless care of your Garden’s Best Friend

In 2016, the world of lawn maintenance was redefined with the introduction of the Husqvarna Automower. Seven years later, this robotic marvel continues to delight. Just like we can’t imagine life without our cellphones and laptops, the Husqvarna Automower, affectionately nicknamed ‘Hillary’ by gardening guru Tanya Visser, has quickly become an indispensable tool for its owners.

There is no doubt, very few don’t dream of owning a Husqvarna Automower, but for most, it may seem out of reach. Yet Wynand Lombaard, Product and Pricing Specialist at Husqvarna South Africa, believes there’s a misconception about the affordability of a Husqvarna Automower. He says, “Contrary to popular belief, an Automower is easier on the pocket than you think. Many South African homeowners are spending well over R1000 a month on traditional garden services and garden care. If you invest in an Automower, you can recoup your expenses in under 24 months, enjoying substantial savings while ensuring a consistently beautiful and manicured lawn. Plus,” he adds, “the average lifespan of an Automower is 5-10 years (depending on how well it’s maintained), making it a solid investment.”

Automower

So, whether you have already made the investment or are looking to purchase an Automower, Lombaard offers the following tips to help you prolong the longevity of, what already is or will become, your most prized gardening tool.

Do:

  • Remove Objects from the Lawn: Before letting your Automower loose, clear the lawn of any objects that might obstruct its path; from kid’s toys and bikes to doggie doodles and other garden tools.
  • Set the Cutting Height: Customise your lawn’s appearance by setting the cutting height according to your preference.
  • Factor in Your Slope Ratings: The Automower is designed to handle various terrains, simply adjust settings according to the slope for optimal results.
  • Keep Your Docking Station Undercover and Clear: Keep your Automower’s docking station undercover and clear from insects and garden waste.

 

Don’t:

  • Use a Pressure Washer or Garden Hose to Clean: Instead, follow recommended cleaning and maintenance procedures for a lasting and efficient device.
  • Forget to Check Blades Every 3 to 6 Months: Regularly inspect and replace blades every 3 to 6 months with 100% Husqvarna Genuine Parts to ensure a consistently clean and precise cut.
  • Run Your Automower when it Rains or the Sprinklers are On: Protect your Automower from potential damage by avoiding operation during rain or concurrently with sprinklers.
