As Derby’s largest independent supplier of robotic lawnmowers, we stock only the highest quality equipment for domestic and commercial use, including leading brands such as Husqvarna and Kress.
As well as selling, we also service and repair all types of lawnmowers (and other garden and grounds equipment) at our specialist workshop - whether you’ve bought from us or not.
Unlike other big retailers, we take the time to get to know your requirements and direct you towards what you actually need, rather than what you think you want. Ensuring you buy right first time.

Why buy a robotic lawnmower?
Two main reasons: it saves time and effort, and produces an exceptional quality of cut.
Now more accessible to the everyday gardener, a robotic lawnmower’s an excellent, hands-off alternative to a regular lawnmower or ride-on lawnmower - allowing you to buy time back without the hard labour. It also produces an incredibly fine cut that arguably rivals the finish of a cylinder mower, giving you a professional cut every time.
Plus as a mulching mower - which re-circulates super fine cuttings across your lawn to decompose quickly and release nutrients back into the soil - it’s much healthier for your lawn and completely waste-free.
Easy to use & simple to install
Designed to make your life easier, simply programme it to cut your lawn at certain times of the day using the robot itself, a remote control or your mobile - depending on which model you choose. Better yet, tell Siri to cut the grass without lifting a finger.
Simple to install (either by us or yourself, depending on the model), its perimeter is controlled by boundary wire, so it’ll never go off course. You can use the DIY installation kits to peg the wire down and allow the grass to grow over and hide it, or have the cable fitted underground (ask us about this).
And gone are the days of lugging a heavy mower to the shed or garage. Once connected to a suitable power supply, the compact charging station can be left outside ready for the mower to automatically return to and self-charge when its battery is low - eliminating the mess and noise of petrol.
Built-in safety & anti-theft features
Both pet-friendly and child-friendly thanks to high-tech sensors that stop the blades if lifted, tipped or an obstacle’s detected, a robotic lawnmower allows you to confidently leave it unsupervised.
And when it comes to security, they’re deemed almost useless without the PIN code (which you set up in the installation process) and their charging station. Depending on your model, an alarm function and tracking feature also help to prevent theft and promote recovery if stolen.
Things to consider before buying a robotic lawnmower
Whether you’ve done your research or not, the best way to find out if a robotic lawnmower is right for you is to get in touch.
One of our experienced team members can even visit you (depending on location) for a free consultation and demonstration to see whether your garden is suitable for a robotic lawnmower. Alternatively, check out a robotic lawnmower in action outside our showroom.
In the meantime, here are some key things to consider:
The size of your lawn
Most people will only need one robotic lawnmower to sufficiently cut their grass. But if your garden is more ‘acres’ than ‘square metres’, or you’ve got more than one large grassed area, it might be an option to have multiple mowers to save you from having to move the robot between areas.
Also if you’re considering using one for commercial use (like a football field), we may suggest one mower per field.
Does your lawn have any slopes?
Not all robotic lawnmowers can handle slopes, let alone steep slopes. So if your lawn has slopes, it’s best to assess the degree of the incline so we can suggest the best model for the job.
How accessible is your garden?
Are there any hard-to-reach places, planters or levels? Do you intend to use it on a front and rear garden? If your garden is particularly complex, we may suggest a more technologically-advanced robotic lawnmower that’s able to navigate around obstacles and tight spaces better.
