Glasgow Botanic Gardens is the latest high profile location in the UK to introduce Husqvarna Automower® to its maintenance process. It joins a growing number of places which are adopting robotic lawnmowing technology.
Glasgow Botanic Gardens, located in the West End of Glasgow and managed by Glasgow City Council, covers 50 acres and is renowned internationally for its architecturally outstanding glasshouse, tropical plant collections and rose gardens.
To add to the already impressive location, Glasgow City Council has recently installed two Husqvarna Automower® robotic lawn mowers, to ensure year-round results are delivered to the Garden’s lawns. The battery-powered robotic lawnmowers work quietly through the night, from 10pm to 10am, maintaining the grass to a consistent length and improving the quality.
Husqvarna Automower® uses a random cutting pattern, ensuring the grass is always cut in different directions. To ensure the lawn appearance is maintained, the mowers can also use the patented guide wire system to vary the way they find the charge station. This system is effective and efficient, and also prevents track marks which can build up over time impacting the lawn aesthetic. The environmentally friendly robotic lawn mowers are designed to cut little and often, recycling the micro-clippings back into the soil to act as a natural fertiliser..
Assistant group manager at Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Gavin Jackson, commented: “I’m a big fan of Husqvarna Automower® due to its green credentials. The battery-powered lawnmowers produce no direct harmful emissions and are near silent, which is ideal as Glasgow City Council are proactively working towards low emission zones and to reduce usage of loud machines in public spaces, with a commitment to be an environmentally-friendly city.”
