Robotic mowers: a device of the future, or a danger to your family? Robotic mowers are sweeping the nation; homeowners everywhere are switching to the low maintenance, easy lifestyle of a robotic mower. But what makes it so unique?
Robotic mowers run on battery-power, not fossil fuels, meaning a more energy efficient way to tend to your lawn. They also eliminate fossil fuel spills. Everyone spills a little gasoline here or there when refueling their lawn care equipment, and you may not think your small spill matters. But did you know that all those little spills combined to equal an estimated 17 million gallons per year? That’s more than Exxon Valdez spilled.
No gasoline use or spills also means no harmful emissions or lawn contamination, creating a safe yard for your pets and children to play on.
WHY IS A ROBOTIC MOWER SAFE AROUND YOUR CHILDREN AND PETS?
Apart from the lack of gasoline use, robotic mowers have a plethora of safeguards to keep everyone in your household perfectly safe. Worried about your children picking the mower up?
An excellent robotic mower has an ear-piercing alarm to warn them away while also turning off the blades.
There is no chance of harm to your children or pets from the blades of a robotic mower. They will always immediately stop if the mower is picked up and robotic mowers are programmed to maneuver around obstacles, including your family safely.
WHY ELSE IS A ROBOTIC MOWER SAFE AROUND CHILDREN AND PETS?
A robotic mower that lives and works solely on your yard means less contamination. A traditional lawn care company uses the same mower on every lawn. If the clients before you have parvovirus on their grass, disease spores, or pesticides, the commercial lawn mower will carry these on its wheels and blades, introducing them onto your yard.
When your pets and children play on the lawn, they are exposed to these harmful additives, potentially affecting their health. Parvovirus, in particular, is extremely dangerous to puppies. It produces symptoms like bloody diarrhea, vomiting, fever, lethargy, weight loss, weakness, and dehydration. If your pet experiences any of these symptoms, take them to a veterinarian immediately.
Robotic mowers keep the threat of parvovirus at bay. Your lawn is healthier and safer with a robotic mower than traditional commercial lawn care companies.
Robotic mowers also decrease your carbon footprint and contamination of our waterways. There are battery-powered, meaning no exhaust and spills from fossil fuels. By switching to a robotic mower, you are making not only your yard healthier but our entire environment. Lake, river, and ocean contamination are at an all-time high. Fertilizer is especially having a detrimental impact on our oceans. Excess nitrogen in the waterways negatively affects aquatic ecosystems creating algal blooms or fish kills.
SO, IS A ROBOTIC MOWER REALLY SAFE AROUND CHILDREN AND PETS?
Yes. The answer is a resounding yes. Switching to a robotic mower is the smartest thing you will ever do for your yard. You will decrease your carbon footprint, decrease waterway contamination, keep your children safe from its blades, and reduce the threat of parvovirus.
