The Plawn Shop showcased the company’s Automower robotic mower portfolio, featured demonstrations and product walk-throughs, plus provided a first look at Husqvarna’s new Automower 415X mower. In addition, two lucky attendees received a free Automower. The Plawn Shop event took place at the Town Square Gazebo on Main Street.
