Perfect Gift for Mom's Vegetable Garden - Tertill Weeding Robot

Tertill Weeding Robot will help keep you Mon's vegetable garden weed free all year long.


Does your Mom have a vegetable garden? If so, we have a unique gadget for you to get her this Mother’s Day. It’s Tertill Weeding Robot, a weeding robot from the inventor of the Roomba Vacuuming Robot. The Tertill works like your robot vacuum, but it weeds your vegetable garden instead of picking up the dirt inside your home. The robot is solar-powered and weatherproof to withstand the weather all year long. It works better than hand weeding and comes with a free app to help you track the robot’s progress in killing weeds.

GearBrain is testing this new weeding robot and likes what it has seen. You can get Tertill Weeding Robot on the company website or on Amazon for $349. The company also offers a Tertill Gift Giver Bundle for $398.99, which comes with a Tertill Weeding Robot, 20-pack of whacker string replacements, 2-pack of whacker hub replacements, 20 packs of plant guards and 20 bags of row guards. If you want to splurge on Mom and give her something no one else will have in their vegetable garden this year, the bundle might be the way to go.
