Beat the Heat This Summer with TurfBot

This summer is predicted to be a hot one! Whether you’re doing yard work or just enjoying leisure time outdoors, monitor yourself and your loved ones for signs of heat stroke and dehydration

Signs of Heat Stroke

  • High body temperature (103°F or higher)

  • Hot, red, dry, or damp skin

  • A fast, strong pulse

  • Headache, dizziness, nausea, or confusion

  • Loss of consciousness (passing out)

If you are experiencing signs of heat stroke, take steps to lower your temperature, call 911, and do NOT drink anything, as the liquid may enter your lungs or airway. 

Signs of Dehydration

  • Dry mouth

  • Fatigue

  • Headache

  • Confusion

  • Dizziness

If you are experiencing signs of dehydration, drink lots of water and restore your electrolytes with sports drinks. In severe cases, you may need to rehydrate with an IV at a hospital.

Hot Weather Precautions

Take these simple precautions to stay safe while working outside in hot weather. 

  1. Hydrate! Just like your lawn needs more water during the hot summer months, you need more water in hotter temperatures and during any physical exertion.

  2. Take frequent breaks in the shade so you are not consistently exposed to severe conditions.

  3. Dress for the weather. Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing while outside on super hot days. Protect your eyes, face, and neck with a wide-brim hat.

  4. Wear SPF, and don’t forget to reapply throughout the day.

  5. When possible, wait for a cooler time of day or week to work outside. Your safety is the most important part of your lawn maintenance routine!

  6. Let TurfBot work for you!


The best way to beat the heat this summer? Cross mowing off your lawn care list! Let a TurfBot robotic mower work for you, so you can stay inside and enjoy the AC. Using smart technology, a TurfBot autonomous lawn mower maintains your lawn, day in and day out, so it’s always freshly cut at the perfect height.
