”All of our Husqvarna Automowers®, where we have them mowing now, it basically looks like it’s been mown 24/7,” Chuck says. ”All the homeowners, they rave about it. They love seeing it. They love the fact the grass is always looking pristine.”
Chuck’s team currently employs nine professional Automower® units in the Lake Nona community, with plans to expand that initial fleet to between 150 and 200 units. According to Chuck, the advantages of using robotics begin at the turf itself.
”Probably the main benefit for me is [using] less agronomics, healthier turf, the consistency on the turf, and the color,” Chuck explains. ”You see the biggest difference in maybe Bermuda. I had a $35,000 gas engine out mowing my Bermuda. Every time you mow it, it hurts the grass. Right now, if you go to any of our Bermuda places, it’s much greener, it’s much healthier.”
