It’s official, the machines have risen and they are taking over every aspect of the Lawncare industry. Let’s take a look at what the pros and cons are of each of three items: Mowers, sprinklers, and fertigation.
There’s no doubt that each of these things are being adopted at a much higher rate than before. I can most certainly appreciate the technology and the advances that are being made and sometimes I feel that perhaps we are going to lose out on the physical enjoyment of taking care of our properties.
Looking at the Robo mowers first, these have made fantastic strides in the last few years and have definitely proven themselves to be very effective. Lawns that are being mowed with Robo mowers often look sleek and have less weeds than their manual mowed counterparts. This just has to do with the constant cutting that is taking place. I would imagine that the lawn would actually stay greener longer and would not have the opportunity to build up any additional thatch layers because the grass clippings would be so small.
As the wireless technology increases, these are going to become more and more desired by new homeowners. They fit very well into a category of people who work too much to take care of their lawn, and who are used to the digital world and the technology managing most of their lives. I will be a late adopter of the mower, however I do want to give one a try and see what it does. I would still like to teach my kids how to mow, and overall just be a bit more or should I say less, technology reliant.
The next thing I wanna talk about is the smart sprinklers that will be definitely taking over the irrigation industry for lawns. This is something that needed to happen and I hope that it becomes a mainstay. Having sprinklers they can map out your lawn and not have any waste or overlap is absolutely huge the ability to water in a square or a rectangle shape with only one head is incredible. There is no doubt in my mind that iin areas where water is a major concern, these are going to take over from standard sprinklers.
Finally, fertilizer tanks. Well this isn’t new, I could see this being adopted in an even bigger way as time goes on. If you already don’t have to mow your lawn and you don’t have to think about your sprinklers, then this is the next logical step. Filling up a fertilizer tank once a year and letting it feed for a small lawn is actually a very easy and economical thing to do. Larger lawns, would require getting a couple more fillings but it would still be easier than putting around a spreader.
I’ve always been a big fan of fertilizer injection, and a lot of these tanks can take both soluble powders and liquids. The next big thing will come along are robots that are not only cutting your lawn but also can take a small measure of fertilizer on its back and feed every time that it cuts. I guarantee that this is coming they’re just trying to figure out the nuts and bolts but… It’s gotta be coming soon.
So I guess the big thing is, are we ready for this? Are we ready to stop doing Lawncare? It seems as though it’s getting to that point and I don’t know if I’m quite yet there.
