Best Robotic Mowers For Medium Sized Lawns

An exceptional robotic lawnmower for a medium-sized UK lawn, ranging from 400m² to 800m², should offer adaptable programming to tackle the distinct challenges of a mid-range garden, ensuring thorough coverage and meticulous care. Moreover, it must possess a robust battery system to handle the entire lawn without frequent recharging, alongside a cutting deck width optimised for this specific size category, to maintain the lawn with efficiency and precision.

  3. Best Camera/Vision Guided – WORX Landroid Vision M600 – WR208E: The innovative WORX Landroid Vision M600 – WR208E is designed for lawns up to 600m² and utilises a patented camera-based navigation system to deliver precise and reliable cutting, with a 20cm cutting width that ensures efficient operation.

Robotic Lawn Mower For Medium Lawns FAQs

Is It Worth Getting A Robot Mower For Medium Sized Lawn?

If you want a well-maintained garden without the hassle of having to mow it yourself then a robotic lawn mower is certainly worth considering. These devices are designed to cut the grass continuously according to your schedule, keeping it consistently tidy. For medium sized lawns, this is great as it can be a lot of work doing the job yourself. Robotic mower manufacturers make a range of mowers designed to cut anything from a very small lawn right up to an entire field, so your will be spoilt for choice when choosing a robotic mower for your medium sized lawn.

How Big Is A Medium Lawn?

When we talk about a medium sized lawn, we are referring to something that is around the size of two tennis courts. If you look at this in square metres, then a medium lawn would be anywhere between 400 and 700 metres square.

What Should I Look For In A Robot Lawn Mower For A Medium Lawn?

When choosing a robotic lawn mower for your medium sized lawn, one of the most important things to think about is its cutting width and the amount of time the mower is programmed to mow each day. The width of the blade tells you how much lawn the mower will cut each time it passes over. For medium sized lawns, you want something mid-sized between 18cm and 22cm, as choosing a smaller deck means that the mower will not be as efficient. On the flip side, a larger model may be too big for your garden in terms of navigating narrow strips and passages, so it’s important to weigh this up. In addition, you will need to ensure that the mower is designed to cut the overall size of your lawn. This is clearly stated in the specifications of the robotic mower and is also normally indicated in the model number. For example, Flymo EasiLife 500 is designed for lawns up to 500 metres squared, the WORX M700 is designed for lawns up to 700 metres squared. Once you have decided on the right sized robotic mower, you can begin looking at other features such as collision detection, multi zone, cut to edge, build quality, cutting height options and app features, among other things. Take a look at my detailed guide on choosing a robotic lawn mower within the blog section of this website.

Do Robot Lawn Mowers Collect The Grass?

No. All robot lawn mowers are mulching mowers. This means that instead of depositing the grass clippings into a bag or box, they drop them back on the ground. But before they do this, the grass clippings are circulated around the blade to chop them into fine pieces. This method of mowing is hugely beneficial to your lawn, will provide additional nutrients to help it thrive, not to mention the amount of grass cuttings a medium lawn produces that needs to be disposed of.

Do Robot Lawn Mowers Cut To The Edge?

A robot lawn mower will cut pretty close to the edge, but most models have an in-built safety feature that prevents them from cutting right to the edge. If the blades were to make contact with an obstacle such as a path or wall, this could damage them. Some robotic mowers have their blades off set to one side of the deck to enable them to cut even closer to the edge compared to those with the blades located in the middle. These mowers will be advertised as “cut to edge”, however there will still be some minor trimming that needs to be done periodically.

Do Robot Lawn Mowers Work On Uneven Ground?

Many robot lawn mowers are designed to tackle various types of terrain meaning that they’ll usually cope with bumps in the ground. It’s important to look for one with larger drive wheels as this will improve the stability of the lawn mower and ensure it does well even when the going gets tough. With regards to slopes the robotic mower specification will clearly state the maximum incline the mower can navigate. You should always check this prior to purchase to ensure it is suitable for your lawn.

What’s The Best Lawn Mower For A Medium Lawn?

The great thing about having a medium lawn is that you can use pretty much any type of lawn mower. However, a robotic lawn mower is a great choice because it takes away the need for you to worry about lawn maintenance and does a very good job of keeping things tidy. Yes, robotic mower will need some set up and configuration initially, however once this is done, you will save a great deal of time when compared to a traditional lawn mower. Some of the best robotic mowers for medium lawns are made by Husqvarna, WORX, Flymo, Gardena to name a few. Always check the features, size of deck, cutting height, warranty, the amount of perimeter wire provided, support, availability of blades and spare parts before you decide to purchase. Also, if your robotic mower allows control from your smartphone, it is worth checking if this app is regularly updated for enhancements and bug fixes.

Do Robotic Lawn Mowers Get Stolen?

If you’re worried about someone hopping into your garden and pinching your robot lawn mower, you can rest easy since there are a number of anti-theft features built into most machines. For example, the operator will usually need a PIN code to use the mower, so the device would be useless to a thief. Moreover, many robot lawn mowers are fitted with alarms and tracking systems, so a thief wouldn’t get very far with your mower. In general, thieves are aware of these features and therefore thefts are extremely rare.

How Much Does A Robot Lawn Mower Cost?

The cost of a robotic lawn mower for a medium sized lawn can vary greatly depending on the quality, manufacturer and other factors. However, generally speaking, you’ll need to be willing to invest between £500 and £800 for a decent model. There are some that come in slightly cheaper and those that go well into four figures. It’s important to set a budget and find the best product you can for your money.

How Much Is The Cheapest Robot Lawn Mower?

Robotic lawn mowers are not cheap tools, so you will need to be willing to part with at least a couple of hundred pounds. Entry level models can be as affordable as £300 like this Mac Allister model. However, if you consider that your mower could last you in excess of a decade when properly taken care of, save you time as you will not need to mow the lawn, you may realise that making a larger investment is worth it for a quality product that meets your requirements and keeps your lawn in prestige condition.

Can Robot Mowers Cope With Leaves?

A robot mower will be able to cope with a small amount of leaves and mulch these in the same way it does the grass. However, if your lawn is covered in leaves then this could cause damage to the blades. It’s always best to remove as much debris from the lawn as possible before using your robotic mower. This will normally involves you clearing leaves and other debris from your lawn in the spring before your robotic mower sets about its business again for the growing season ahead.

How Often Should My Robotic Mower Run?

Robotic lawn mowers are designed to run significantly more frequently than other types of mower, so you’ll usually need to set it to mow at least every couple of days. That said, some people would agree that a quick run over with the robot mower every day is the best way to maintain a healthy lawn. You can schedule your mower’s cutting time by either using the app on your smartphone or control panel on the mower itself, this can then be easily adjusted according to the season and your needs. Some more sophisticated robotic mowers are cleaver enough to adjust the schedule themselves based on the condition and length of the lawn.

  1. Hi Mark,

    I tried the worx lawn mower and ran into issues where the razor blades wouldn’t frequently get stuck. It also didn’t handle the slope well.

    I upgraded into the robomow and the cut was significantly better and it handled the slope with no problem. Well worth the upgrade.

    Will

    1. Yeah that would make sense Will. I’m assuming because of the slope in your lawn, that you have quite a complex garden. The Robomow RC308 (which I’m also assuming is the Robomow model you’re talking about) is better suited to these types of lawns so I can understand why it has operated so much better.

      Thanks for sharing your experience, I’m happy to hear that your new mower has been well worth the money!!

  2. Great to get your recommendation for which mower is best for simple of complex lawns so value for money is ensured. I’m wondering how these mowers cope with grass cuttings as they progress? Whenever I mow the lawn I have to keep going back to the compost bin to empty the mower of cuttings.

    1. Don’t worry you don’t need to bother with grass clippings, they’re so small that they drop in between the grass to the bottom of the soil so you can’t see them. That’s just one of the great benefits with having a robotic lawn mower!

      Thanks for the questions and if you have any more then let me know ;-)

  3. This is hilarious! I was just teasing my bf today and saying I would have to invent a lawn mower that would cut the grass while he sits in his chair! who knew someone had beat me to it. Awesome article and great videos! Keep up the good work! Hope you have some more robot tools for my lackadaisical bf.
