Graze is building the lawn mower of the future.

It’s developed fully autonomous electric mowers for the commercial landscaping industry. Equipped with proprietary technology, these mowers enable companies to reduce labor costs and increase profit margins.

The mowers use machine learning, navigation, and safety sensors. These enable them to map job sites, plan and execute mowing plans, avoid obstacles, and collect data to optimize for precision and efficiency.

Graze has a partnership with Mainscape, one of the largest U.S. commercial landscaping companies. Mainscape has pre-ordered 200 mowers, creating $18 million in sales for Graze.

Graze is backed by Wavemaker Partners, a global venture capital fund. And it’s completed Wavemaker Labs, an incubator geared toward companies focused on automation.
