Fire Your Lawn Service to Save a Buck Or Two – Grand! Robotic Mowing Solutions

Let’s face it. In today’s times, saving money is priority. To save money, we switch to lower cost television and phone plans. We cut back on power usage, use less water and even replace old appliances to save maybe a couple hundred dollars a year, but what can we do to really cut cost at home? Perhaps we should look outdoors.

Lets do some quick math. If you pay a lawn service per week for 5 months out of the year, that’s 0 each year. In four years you’ve paid ,200 to your lawn service company. If your lawn is medium sized, you would pay as much as to 5 a week. That’s costing you ,500 in just 3 years making it easy to see why considering a lawn service alternative might be a bright idea.

But who’s got time to push or ride a lawn mower every weekend? Wouldn’t you rather spend the time doing other things? That’s where technology steps in. About eight years ago, robotic lawn mowers quietly eased their way into the household market. Today, hundreds of thousands of lawns worldwide and here in the US are being maintained by home robotic lawn mowers.

A robotic lawn mower may be one of the smartest investment purchases you can make in order to save money. This is especially so if you have a quarter acre lawn or larger. Dollar for dollar, a robotic lawn mower will not only save you time, but will cost considerably less than a lawn service or owning and maintaining riding lawn mower.

But with prices ranging from ,299 to ,200, robotic lawn mowers tend to scare some people away; that is, until they do the math. If you add the cost you pay a lawn service on a year-to-year basis, a robotic lawn mower can pay for itself with the first 2 to 3 years of ownership. Since some robotic lawn mowers can have a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years, you’ll be in the green years before you can expect to repair a broken old robotic lawn mower.
