A new set up

Posted by on 16 Jun 2006 | Tagged as: General

Betsie made it back to the charging dock tonight all by herself.

I redid some of the front yard wire to put the base station on the right side of the house. Now the front yard is zone 1, back zone 2, and inside the dog fence zone 3.

My rapid return triangles aren’t working, but she still made it home to charge after mowing out front.

This set up stuff would have been easier with a smaller yard the first time. I can’t wait to get our new house and do it all over again (seriously, no sarcasm at all!).

Thick grass

The neighbor’s yard seems to have super tough super thick grass. And it doesn’t get cut that often. So I’m taking advantage of it being short today! Betsie is hacking away at our border to get it down to meet his.

Helpful adjustments

I raised the blade back up and found a nice dremel tool to sharpen it with. Betsie is doing a great job on the side yard so far!

The side yard is only about 7 feet wide, so I’m curious how long she’ll get stuck over there before returning to the front.

Me neighbor seems to have very thick, tough grass. It’s also deep and spongy under the blades. Quite a challenge for Betsie, and I may just move the wire further onto my property and hope his paid lawn guy cuts the difference.

On another note, my boyfriend and I are house shopping! I never thought I’d be adding “lawn suitable for robot mowing” to my wish list. 🙂
