Thankfully not around back in the day when mowing the lawn could earn you enough for a bag of sweets and a can of dandelion and burdock, the Solar Mower from Husqvana is the single most important gardening innovation since William The Conqueror built the stables so they backed onto the rose garden. Put simply, it means you'll never have to mow the lawn again.
Once you've set the working area by laying a low current loop (also solar powered) around the edge of the lawn, that's it. Feet up, radio on, dismantle a Sunday paper and let the sleek blue miracle do its thing. Impact sensors send the Solar Mower around immovable obstacles like trees and furniture while the loop stops it from scything down your begonias. Practically silent, the solar panel is sensitive enough to keep the mower juiced up non-stop on a sunny day and working well even when it's cloudy or overcast. And it'll make next-door's cat think twice about nipping over the fence too.
