I, Robot Mower

Q: Do robot mowers work and are they worth the money? If not, then how will we know when the day of the robot is really here? —Jim Babcock, Omaha

A: Yes, these mowers do work, and I suppose they're worth the money if you really don't want to mow, or hire a lawn service, and your yard isn't bigger than 5,000 square feet. We'll know robotic mowers have arrived when they can cover about five times that area, have an onboard GPS to steer them efficiently without the need for buried wires, and there's a network of repair shops you can go to when they need fixing. —Roger Cook, TOH Landscape Contractor
