The UK Noise Abatement Society, a charitable foundation focused on minimizing the noise level from various appliances, has recently presented the winners of an all-new award. The Quiet Mark acknowledges products that are especially easy on the ears, and amongst the first-ever recipients is the Husqvarna Automower®. Or rather, the entire fleet of Husqvarna robotic mowers.

Global Gardening Report 2012

For all UK media enquiries

This year’s edition of the Global Garden Report, Husqvarna’s annual gardening trend analysis, shows that the link between relaxation and time spent outdoors is stronger than ever. In short; by staying in close touch with nature we increase our sense of well-being. A fact that ties directly to the UK Noise Abatement Society’s newly instituted award: the Quiet Mark. As our gardens become more associated with stillness and harmony we now strive to make the work effort they need as silent as possible.
 
”This is a great initiative and we are delighted to receive the Quiet Mark as its very existence shows that Husqvarna Automower® is the way of the future. Its quiet operation let’s users sit back, relax and truly enjoy their garden – free from both the task of mowing and the noise that often comes with it,” says Torsten Bollweg, Vice President Brands & Marketing at Husqvarna Group. 

The first Husqvarna Automower® model was launched 15 years ago and with the broad range available today, including five different models, it’s now possible for anyone to get a helping robotic hand in the garden. Regardless of lawn-size. Gently and quietly roaming its assigned area the automatic mower is constantly at work, chopping grass into fine pieces that fertilize the ground. Thus simultaneously adding a healthy green look to your well-trimmed lawn.

This is Husqvarna Automower®

• The original robotic mower, and one of the first products to receive the Quiet Mark in the “Garden Tool & Lawnmowers” category.
