Can I Install My Own Automower or Robot Mower

The short answer is yes.

You can install the perimeter wires yourself by laying them out on the lawn surface, and hammering in pegs by hand to hold the cable down, or using a garden tool like a “half moon” to cut open your lawn, and then bury the cable about 1 inch deep. Both methods work well.

Alternatively hire a cable laying machine, and this will do the work of installing the cable into the ground for you. If you would like to hire a cable laying machine – contact us at Hughie Willett Machinery ( Tel: 0121 308 1262 ). The video below shows a cable laying machine in action.
