Automower® – Where do the grass clippings go?
By far the most common question we get asked when someone first sees an Automower® is – Where do the grass clippings go?
With traditional mowing the lawn is typically cut when the grass gets too high, meaning you take off a few centimetres of grass and use a collector to get rid of the clippings, thus removing any natural goodness from the soil.
The Automower® concept is to keep short grass short. Using three razor-sharp blades, Automower® constantly cuts the grass as it grows, cutting only a few millimetres at a time. The clippings are so fine and small they don’t need to be collected. The grass clippings instead fall to the soil, mulch and serve as a natural fertiliser for your lawn, resulting in a lush, healthy green lawn.
