I watched a couple of additional videos and, like anything, there are pros and cons. The biggest negative that made me stop watching and rule out further thinking about it is that they seem to cut grass to 2.5 inches. Maybe there is a newer version that cuts higher but I wasn’t motivated to research further.

Replacing my lawn guy because he cuts the grass too short with a machine that cuts it too short doesn’t seem like a good strategy, particularly when I thought about how I’d still need to deal with the lawn edges and hedge maintenance. Anyway, it’s will be sort of interesting to see how these develop further over time.

Your lawn guy cuts it too short cause if he has to miss a day because of rain it allows him some wiggle room. But if your lawn is use to being cut short it will be fine. I have tall fescue so my grass cut is 4". I like it thick and lush

I think they cut it short because that's what other customers prefer and they don't know any better.

We're in a drought in FL right now. I'm not cutting my grass at all right now. Whats the point?

Now is the time to irrigate since it is dry and getting pretty hot. Otherwise lawn will get stressed and burn, inviting weeds and pests. I have mine going 3 days a week right now, which I rarely do. So it still needs to be cut with irrigation. Irrigation can be turned off or cut back to once a week when the rain returns on a regular basis.

I had a few rogue avocados on the tree and thought I'd pick one. Marcus seems to know it's tasty...

i don't like how it just roams around in random straight lines until it reaches a boundary or hits something. i also don't like that it is just constantly mowing. seems like you just have to let this thing run constantly.

My father has had one for years, and he has a large yard. Has its own house and everything, where it goes to bed a night and charges for another exciting day of mowing! My father loves it, wouldn't ever want to part with it.

Question for you experts.

I recently discovered mice in my yard. I think they're called voles. Just not sure if they're mice or voles. They're in my front yard a few yards from the main door. What do you guys recommend to get rid of them?

Also, I have a June bug infestation and they all keep gathering on my front porch and die. How can I remedy this?

the little mfer on the left is the vole, the one on the right is a mole. if you said mice it's probably the one on the left. there's products out there you can buy depends if you want to kill them or get rid of them?


lots of YouTube videos to give you ideas on how to get rid of them

Just planted a Japanese maple bush and leaves are wilting and falling off. No browning or crisping. Could it be shock?

Probably. Early Spring would have been ideal. Did you add some organic compost and fertilizer? Scrape up the root ball for the roots to spread out?

The first two yes, loosen the root ball no, should have.

I guess next spring will tell the story.

Is there a second growth cycle in the summer fall?
