How Has Technology Changed the World of Lawn Care?


The lawn is the pride and joy of many Americans. A lot of people see lawn care as something that hasn’t changed a lot in the last few decades, especially when compared to a bunch of other elements of everyday life. Well, lawn care has actually changed quite a lot, and there’s plenty of technology out there to prove it! Let’s take a look at some of the technological products people are using on their lawn these days.

 

Solar power

 

There are loads of technologies to discuss when it comes to lawn care. But there’s a common technology that runs across many of them that helps them be more efficient and affordable. Something that works really well, considering it’s all outdoor technology. You guessed it: solar power! Many of the best advances in lawn technology involve solar power on some level. This means you can take great care of your lawn while still taking great care of the environment.

 

 

The mower of the future

 

Believe it or not, a lot of people don’t seem to know that mowers have advanced past pedestrian ground driven rotaries or cylinder mowers! These things are old technologies now, my friends. They’re hardly the safest things you can use to mow your lawn, and besides, they were never really that precise or clean at cutting anyway. Those things were basically the replacements of the scythe. And if you’ve actually seen someone tend to their lawn with a scythe recently, you let us know. Just like the scythe, these things have been replaced by new technology. Although that technology is still a form of mower, it’s a much more efficient and advanced mower.

 

Advanced irrigation systems

 

Automated sprinklers are hardly new. They’re an amazing luxury, though. In fact, it could be argued that they often work a little too well. People often forget to actually turn them off during rainy seasons, after all. Thankfully, there are irrigation ideas here that can deal with loads of common sprinkler problems. From landscape complexities, weather changes, and even backflow prevention, you can get systems that basically look after themselves.

Automated plant care

 

Having gorgeous plans at the front of your house can give your residence a sense of beauty and class before anyone has even entered the home! So it’s no surprise that more and more people are becoming interested in lawn plants. Thankfully, you can actually get automated plant care if you’re a bit too busy to deal with all of that fuss yourself.

Artificial lawns

 

Hey, maybe you don’t care all that much about all this new lawn technology. All you know is that you don’t really want to have to take care of your lawn at all and would rather do without it. I’d argue that the above technologies have made that more of a reality now, but perhaps you’d prefer to simply do away with the whole thing. Thankfully, there is one technology you could be interested in: that of advanced artificial lawns. A lot of people have been put off synthetic lawns – but if they’re starting to feel indistinguishable from the real thing, it will turn some more heads again!
