Imagine having a perfectly cut lawn whilst watching your lawnmower do all the work for you. The Automower® from Husqvarna fulfils this dream in all weather conditons and seasons with incredible ease. At the touch of a button this small yet powerful machine sets about the task at hand, leaving you to sit back and enjoy your garden.

The lawnmower is no longer an item we hide at the back of the shed. In today’s hectic world, robotic mowers work on the lawn for you making them an integral part of the garden. The Husqvarna Automower® has made such an impact on the gardening world that it was awarded a prestigious Red Dot Design award in Europe earlier this year for its unique innovation. It was selected from over four thousand entries across the globe.

“Design and ergonomics are two of our strongest competitive edges. The recognition from Red Dot Design Awards indicates that our priorities have paid off.” - Towe Ressman, Head of design for Husqvarna Group

The user friendly Automower has zero emission and keeps noise levels to an absolute minimum and is safe and efficient for a multitude of users. A perimeter wire installed during initial set-up is all it needs to guide its own way around the lawn. After that, the razor sharp blades and random cutting patterns take care of the rest. The grass cuttings produced are so fine that they decompose quickly, providing a natural fertiliser.

It works independently, rain or shine. Brilliantly simple, great for your conscience and even better for the planet, the Automower offers the best solution for maintaining the perfect lawn.
