Start the Mower

There is a new lawn mower - the Husqvarna automower.  It has no handle. There isn't one in the picture as it is a little robot.  It works safely around pets and children, it remains discreet and silent, it mows both day and night and even in nasty weather.  It 'clips' rather than cuts, and mows based on grass growth rate.  Given you can monitor it from you smart phone, wouldn't it qualify as part of the Internet of Things?  Other selling features include being able to find its charging station by following a boundary wire. 

Here is Reader's digest's advise on how to 'treat your lawn to a healthy tonic':
Many homeowners have had great success with homemade lawn “tonics” made from simple products that might already be on your pantry shelves. The recipes vary, but most share these common ingredients:
  • 1 can non-light beer
  • 1 can non-diet soda pop
  • 1 cup ammonia
  • 1 cup liquid dish soap
  • 1 cup molasses or corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup mouthwash
There's an explanation for this recipe of ingredients and their benefits.  (really!)

We're looking at the newly renovated Longwood Fountain Garden.  Over $90 million was spent to re-landscape the area and to introduce the latest technology in fountain displays.
