We are a family run business. The only people on your property will be East Fork Landscape employees with battery operated equipment and robotic mowers. Our experience with robotic lawn mowing makes us a leader in the implementation and operation of this technology.
East Fork employs robotic lawnmowers utilizing the latest technological advancements that can independently service a lawn up to 1 1/4 acres. The robot resides at the client's property making daily passes across the lawn cutting continuously in a free-form pattern until it is time to return to its home base for recharging. Robotic mowers are contained in the work area by a combination of a boundary wire system and built-in GPS. With the ability to operate at night and in the rain scheduling is very flexible and efficient based on the customers needs. A mobile app gives us the capability to interact and adjust the mower settings in real time.
At East Fork, we are working hard to offer smart and technologically advanced ways to provide environmentally friendly lawn care. East Forks robotic lawnmowers are extremely smart, efficient and quiet using less energy and reducing air and noise pollution.
