Robomow helps soldier on Alan Titchmarsh's Love Your Garden

Robomow is now helping an injured soldier and his family keep their lawn in tip top condition after it was donated to Alan Titchmarsh's TV garden makeover show.

Mower Magic, based in Lincoln, donated the Robomow to Ian Costello, his wife and three children, as part of ITV’s Love Your Garden programme, which was aired on TV on 24 July.
The Robomow was installed into the newly remodelled family garden in Norwich after Ian was severely injured in a roadside bomb attack while serving for the British Military in Afghanistan. Despite a valiant effort to recover and return to active duty, Ian was unable to overcome his injuries and could not regain operational fitness.
The Robomow will allow Costello to manage the up-keep of his new garden, without any physical exertion that could hamper the rehabilitation of his injuries. It is designed to automatically cut the grass so Ian doesn’t have to. It can be programmed to mow even the most complex lawn to ensure your garden is kept tidy all year round.
Mower Magic MDJohn Hall said:  "We were very proud to be part of the show and to donate a Robomow to Ian and his family. We hope that it will help him keep his garden looking as fantastic as it did after the transformation. Thanks to Robomow the Costello family will never have to worry about cutting the grass again, the family robot will do it for them."
