Home & Garden

(BPT) - Whether it's for Father's Day, Mother's Day, a birthday or just to show your appreciation, it's always a struggle to come up with gift ideas for your parents. This is especially the case when parents claim they have everything they need and prefer to do things their own way.

Try a robotic mower?

One of those things they'll always have to do is take care of the lawn - mowing, trimming, fertilizing and more mowing. Whether they like it like it or not, it's a weekly chore.

So this year, why not think about getting them something that eases their routine?

Whether Mom and Dad are somewhat behind the times when it comes to technology, or they're the ones who wait in line to get the latest smartphone, there are game-changing breakthroughs in lawn care technology that are making a big splash across the country. And this just might be the gift idea you've been looking for.

An evolution in lawn care

Maintaining a lawn takes a lot of work, and as you grow older, you realize this more than ever. At times, the satisfaction in doing the work yourself may start to wear thin.

The good news is that technology similar to that which goes into self-driving cars, along with the sensors that allow new cars to park themselves, are being harnessed for lawn care.

That's right - a robotic mower is now available that automatically cuts your grass. Words not normally associated with lawn care - such as effortless and hands free - are now the secret to a great looking yard!

The Automower(R) revolution

Husqvarna, the world's largest producer of robotic mowers, recently brought three new models to its lineup of Automowers(R). Guided by the boundary wires that define the borders of your yard, flowerbeds and other landscaping features, the Husqvarna Automower(R) is designed to easily maneuver over a variety of terrain, including inclines up to 25 degrees (depending on the model) and narrow spaces.

The automated system is amazing in itself, but one of the things many owners are most surprised at is how the Automower(R) can precisely cut grass even in the midst of a downpour. Add to this its silent operation and your parents will no longer need to wait for the right time to mow.

While the technology may be impressive, this is far from just a cool new toy. With its sharp, razor-like blades, this little machine houses a unique cutting system that will keep your parents' lawn looking better than ever.

The loud, gas-powered world of small engines that makes up lawn care is changing. Who knows, the motorized push lawn mower might go the way of the rotary phone.

While the 21st century has seen some astronomic leaps in technology, most of the attention revolves around the devices we put in our pockets or on our desks. Breakthroughs like the Husqvarna Automower(R) remind us of the extent by which technology is making our lives easier.

And not just making lawn mowing easier, but making it a bit easier to buy Mom and Dad a gift as well.
