The robotic lawn mower market size was at two billion dollars in 2021 and will double by 2027. With growing interest in the visual appeal of beautiful yards, people are beginning to favor automatic lawn mowers instead of doing it themselves. Even golf courses are interested in the products, which are made by Honda, iRobot,  Robomow, and Stanly Black & Decker.

Most of the mowers can be connected via Bluetooth. Others have GPS tracking and mobile apps. The Husqvarna Automower 315X can mow a medium sized yard that is less than 17,000 square feet, all the while with no fumes and noise. It also features LED headlights, theft tracking, and a rubber bumper to prevent damage if it crashes. The only downside is the two thousand dollar cost.

On the other end of the spectrum of automated lawn mowers, the Yard Force SA650ECO mows only 650 square meters of yard, but cost much less, at a price of $656. It can tackle a higher incline of yard almost identical cutting width and is also battery operated. they both use boundary wires to help detect the edges of the yard.

The innovation of automated machines was a boundary that now broken, will change the world forever. With automated vacuum cleaners, ovens, lawn mowers, and yard watering robots, we can only wonder what will happen next.
