Does a robotic lawnmower work on a large, uneven sloping site?

My site is large, on a slope and uneven; can a robot lawnmower be installed and if so what can I expect from installation and maintenance?

A decade ago, robot lawnmowers weren’t as advanced as they are now and we would have shied away from installing them on rugged sites. But now with slope control technology and four wheel drive, they can pretty much deal with any lawn that’s up to 5,000sqm or an acre and a quarter.

The main thing we’d look out for is for the garden layout – the more areas you have that are separate from one another the more difficult/costly it is to set up. Depending on the site you can have multiple lawnmowers to cover all the ground; we advise on the best solution for each case after a site visit.
