April is the perfect time to get your lawn looking like a manicured green carpet! There’s so much to know, but with this new technology in grass growing and maintenance, it couldn’t be easier! Check out what Skip found to seed, fertilize and mow your lawn to have it looking like a pro did it:
Black Beauty is a family of proprietary TALL FESCUE varieties that are darker green than the best Kentucky Bluegrasses and perennial rye-grasses.
Black Beauty has roots that will grow up to 4 FEET deep, not 6” to 9” like bluegrass and ryegrass.
Black Beauty has a waxy coating on the leaf, similar to that on an apple, which cuts back the evaporation rate on the plant.
With less water being lost through the leaves and more water being held by the roots, Black Beauty is an extremely drought- and disease-resistant plant. In fact, it requires about 30% less water and fertilizer than most turf varieties!
Black Beauty, like all Jonathan Green products, are available ONLY at independent hardware stores and garden centers.
Husqvarna’s Automower® is the world’s best-selling robotic lawn mower and shows that more than 20 years of research and development experience in robotic mowing make a difference. The flagship model, the Automower® 450X is packed with innovative features.
The 450X is the top-of-the-line robotic mower on the market and can service larger lawns up to 1.25 acres and with slopes up to 45%/24 degrees.
With its unique cutting system of three pivoting razor blades, Automower® trims just fractions of an inch off the grass at a time instead of letting grass grow tall and tearing it off with a fixed blade. The resulting clippings are so small they fall back into the soil and act as a natural fertilizer, creating a better, healthier lawn. Automower® 450X also comes with a patented electric height adjustment, allowing users to adjust the cutting height from the main menu or the Automower® Connect smartphone app quickly and with ease.
Its patented GPS-assisted navigation allows Automower® 450X to handle large and complex yards with ease. An onboard GPS system creates a map of the yard, including where the boundary and guide wires are installed. The mower will then register which parts of the lawn it has covered and adjusts its mowing pattern accordingly, ensuring optimized lawn coverage and an excellent cutting result. GPS also allows you to track your mower through the Automower® Connect smartphone app, minimizing the risk of theft.
Obstacles and tight spaces are no sweat thanks to Automower®’s patented automatic passage handling system. It senses narrow passages and finds its way through them with ease. It will even vary its route through the passage to avoid unpleasant tracks.
Automower® 450X comes with several important safety features, including remote object detection. It’s built-in sensors use ultrasonic technology to help the mower detect objects. It will then lower its speed to avoid hard collisions. When the mower encounters an obstacle, it stops, turns around and proceeds in a different direction. Additionally, Automower®’s blades immediately stop spinning when the mower is even slightly lifted, making it safe for use around children and pets.
