[ARCHIVED] A Greener Way to Cut Grass

Robot Mower

Last year, the Village initiated a pilot program with its mowing contractor (Langton Group) to deploy robotic lawn mowers at select Skokie turf locations.

The zero-emission electric mowers will help the Village reach its Environmental Sustainability Plan goal of reducing off-road and lawn equipment emissions by 30 percent by 2030.

In addition to the environmental benefits, the robotic mowers:

  • Are silent and efficient
  • Employ sensors to stay away from people, pets and pathways
  • Are equipped with tracking devices to keep them on the job

The mowers are now being tested in Channel Park, with the goal of expanding them to more Village-maintained locations.
