It’s A Roomba For Golf Courses

The title jests a little bit, of course. This is awesome. Graze — Autonomous Mowing.

“Graze is building electric, autonomous lawn mowers specifically for the commercial landscaping industry to counter labor shortages and rising wages in the US.”

What I love about this is how huge the opportunity is and how simultaneously how trivial it seems. That’s kind of a perfect combination.

Graze touts commercial landscaping as a $100 billion industry. I believe it. I’ve always heard just how insanely expensive turf management is.

And yet.

This isn’t a vehicle traveling 25 mph down city streets. It’s not even a tractor, which has the potential to wreck a field and impair the food supply.

The worst thing that’s going to happen here is the golf greens get chewed up and they have to order replacement sod.

Honestly, it just seems like a lot of fun. I know nothing about the company or the team or their prospects. But it’s a great market and they’re taking investors!

I’m now their 9th Twitter follower.
