Do you think this is going to get bigger and bigger? Offering the service of installing an automatic mowing system?

I think this has the potential to get pretty big.

I haven't seen this service offered yet.

What's your view?

Home Business Innovation: Get Your Lawn Mowed 100 % Automatically - Today Patrick is enjoying the success of his latest venture, The Home Automatic Robotic Lawn Care Systems. A few years ago the thought of a lawn mower going out by itself and mowing the lawns was nothing short of a dream. But thanks to Patrick's vision and international research this is now a reality and his new business AutolawnMow Ireland is taking the Irish market by storm.

So how can you delegate this onerous task to the robotlawnmower? First a visit by a technician from AutolawnMow will evaluate the grounds around the house to check if the lawns are suitable to operate an automatic robotic lawn care system. Ninety per cent of them are. Once the green area has been approved the technician, using a special machine, will inject a nickel silver wire into the lawn to about half an inch under the surface. The wire will then be linked to a base station, usually a garage, in which the robot resides while resting. The robot, traveling from one lawn to another around the house, will leave them mowed to a very high standard.


Check out his website here: http://www.robotlawnmowers.ie/

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Yeah it could get big..... til it runs down some ladies cat & makes an automated furball out of it. Or when the wiring underground shorts & it mows the plant beds down to stumps.

So. Do the blades sharpen themselves too?
Can the little robot trim & blow off?
Will it suck or blow?

I think it's just more likley to suck.

I've heard of those things before. The robot doesn't do a regular pattern very well, so it doesn't leave a great looking result. I'm surprised its gotten so big. I don't think it could ever replace the quality of a human mowing your lawn, especially since it can't edge.

The thing that I thought was unique about this business was that it installed the systems. Then I am guessing, regularly maintained it.

Have you seen anyone else offering this kind of service?

From what I read, it's kinda like setting up an invisible dog fence. Where there are these underground markers and the mower, mows within them.
