- Easy adjustment of the cutting height from 0.8 to 2.4 inches
Fully integrated smart homes are getting further from science fiction and closer to our reality every day. Advancements in communication tools like video chat hubs keep families connected, while shopping aids and home management devices like Alexa and Google Home guarantee fewer frustrating late night shopping runs for essentials.
The next chore we can hopefully eliminate is lawn care.
While programmable automated vacuums have been around for years, Husqvarna is the first major brand to bring a major mowing revolution to every day consumers. Available at Lowe’s, the Automower 315, as well as the rest of their mower line, is highly rated and frequently raved about. The quiet engine and clipper style cutting means some reviewers actually programmed it to run at night, guaranteeing that perfectly maintained lawn without sacrificing any outdoor play time waiting on the mower to finish.
It takes slopes with no problem, runs fine on wet grass or in the rain; the only draw back is that it maxes out at .4 acres of lawn, keeping it firmly in the small to medium lawn range. If you’re tired of sacrificing scarce free time to mow the lawn, but still balk at the expense of a lawn service, consider adding some smart home convenience to your life.
There aren’t many people who could look outside on a hot summer afternoon and watch a little robot mower work and think, “I sure miss mowing the lawn.”
