What to consider before buying a lawnmower?
Calculate the grass surface, not the plot. You can calculate this by subtracting the area that does not need to mow, for example, the house’s base plate and other buildings, flower beds, pools, paving, patios, and other surfaces.
Therefore, you must buy a robotic lawn mower with a high capacity to cut your grass evenly on the whole area by staying less distributed. Otherwise, your grass will unevenly cut.
So, it would help if you bought a lawnmower that’s capacity is twice higher than the plot grass surface. For example, if your grass surface is 500 m2, choose a robot with a capacity of 1,000 m2.
If your garden has irregular flower beds, narrow passages, and several cutting surfaces and areas, then it needs to be partially mowed. For this purpose, our expert Robert will do this by using a boundary wire to the robotic lawnmower. It will be installed in or on the ground
The cable’s laying edge establishes the working area of the robotic lawnmower as it receives a signal as an invisible fence, so it does not come out from boundary wire. As a result, it makes the process easy and ensures that the robot arrives for the charging at the base station.
A connection between two lawns is called a passage that a robotic lawn mower must pass through. If there is a narrow passage, then the robotic lawn mower can not come out without getting stuck. For example, Husqvarna Automowers need a guide cable and a 1,3-meter width passage. While the other does not use any guide cable, instead of edge cable, 1,5-meter like Robomow, 60 cm AL-KO.
We recommend installing edge cables 30 centimeters apart so that cables can not cancel each other signals and the robotic lawn mower can feel the limitation.
You can check the installation instructions of the manufacturer. If you need any help to find the best robot for your surface and passages, then book a free site inspection now.
Distance between Islands
In your lawn areas where you do not want your mower to enter, you need to create the islands with boundary wire. The locations can be flower beds, shrubs, sensitive trees, garden land, and areas. The island prevents the robotic lawnmower from entering the screened place. Therefore, there must be a reasonable distance between islands. If the space is narrow, the robot will drive out of the restricted area. Also, if the boundary wire is so close to each other, then the robot will not register as a signal and passes by.
Instead of making several islands closely, opt to make a large one. Otherwise, your mower can get stuck. So, check the lawnmower width before buying. Or you can also invite us for a site inspection to suggest the best lawn mower while considering islands.
Before buying or having a robotic lawn mowing service, check that the robot lawnmower has a collision or crash sensor.
When a robot with a collision sensor hits something, it stops and changes the direction. Robots with collision sensors can handle gentle bumps, trees, and walls. Also, robots with crash sensors change the direction before hitting something. So, there is no need to fence the hurdles with boundary wire.
If there is any stump or visible roots, the robot will cross over it, and the cutting blades will get damaged.
Our expert Robert helps customers in removing stumps and roots with stump grinder in Stockholm and Uppsala.
If your lawn is uneven, it has high stones, pits, or a bumpy surface; the robotic lawn mower gets stuck. Before grasping the robot lawn mower installation, make the ground even by putting the sand or soil to fill pits or make the bumps gentle. To avoid the robot stuck at a bump, try increasing the cutting height. You can also choose a robot with big wheels with a larger space between them than others. If your lawn already has a slope, and you are unsure, the lawnmower can easily pass on it. Find our free advice.
You can also fill the stone with sand or soil to make a slope, but it will reappear over time.
So, why not renovate your lawn before the robotic lawn mowing service.
Spot a charging location before buying a robotic lawn mower for easy access of the robot to find its charging place without losing signals.
If it is not easy for you, book a free inspection, and Robert will tell you the perfect charging place where the mower gets back after mowing the whole lawn.
Professional installation of robotic lawnmowers
With the hundreds of installations of robot lawn mowers every season, Robert from TrädgårdSmart can satisfy you by removing the stump and installing a robotic lawnmower.
We help you with the installation of robot’ boundary wire and robotic lawnmower. If you already bought the robot or have an idea of how you want your installation.
Installation of motor-driven AutoCable
When installing the boundary cable, we get it down a bit about 5cm where possible. It makes Robert’s service unique among others. Our motorized cable-layers from AutoCable are used when installing the robotic lawn mower’s edge cable and guide cable for some models.
We protect the cable in-ground and update the security cable for safer operation. Hidden cables look clean, and there is no risk of tripping. Robert has done thousands of completed installations.
After the installation of the boundary wire, we connect the charging station. Also, it ensures that the robot is correctly installed and finds the way to mow your lawn as desired.
Another unique advantage of our service is we provide edge cable readjustment in cases where we have followed the manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions.
Things to consider before the installation of a robot lawnmower?

- We do not cut the grass
- Consider removing shrubs and hedges to draw the restricted area correctly
- There must not be any stumps to avoid lawn mower breakage
- In your lawn, there must be a 220V grounded outlet
- There must be a one-meter free passage around the outer edges of the lawn
- You can book an appointment to remove hedges, shrubs, and stumps to ensure proper mowing
