In a nutshell
The Landroid mower does away with boundary cables and tricky GPS receivers and uses cameras and AI technology to mow your lawn instead. It connects to your phone or tablet via the Landroid app, but you can also control most of the functions via the onboard LCD screen and dial if you like. The cameras know where your lawn ends, keep an eye out for obstacles, and even avoid hitting wildlife or pets. The cutting height ranges from 30 – 60 mm and the three blades underneath are offset, allowing the mower to cut close to the edge of hard boundaries. It creates its own mowing schedule to suit the time of year and is packed with features and clever technology, the only thing that might put you off is the price. The mower comes with a two year warranty that can be extended to three years. We awarded it a BBC Gardeners' World Magazine Best Buy for installation and features.
