Getting your garden going isn’t always as easy as relying on your green thumb, and it’s probably much more difficult if you weren’t even born with a garden-friendly instinct in the first place.
Luckily, we live in an age of technology, which means that there is a plethora of cutting-edge tools, apps and gadgets out there to help transform even the most struggling garden into a serene space in no time. Here are some of the gadgets you should keep an eye out for:
If you are new to gardening, and want to get up to speed without the learning curve, you should think about getting a gardening app. There are many to choose from, so take some time to find one that’s perfect for your garden. At the very least, the app should give you relevant tips, landscaping ideas as well as general knowledge that will help you become a better gardener in the long run.
If you feel stuck when planning your garden, there are also various apps available that will help you to plot out your available space and give you suggestions of which plants will flourish in the given area. If you are an iOS user, Garden Plan Pro is a great example of what to look for.
Using infra-red light to monitor the health of your plants is both efficient, and a great way to learn more about gardening. Best of all, there is a DIY infrared camera available that you can build yourself, called Infragram. Using the easy-to-build camera, you will be able to see if your plants are struggling to thrive, and better yet, discover more about them than you even knew possible.
Non-invasive artificial help
If you are struggling to keep larger pests from destroying your garden, but don’t want to resort to lethal traps or poison, you should think about getting an owl garden decoy. Modern variants not only look like their more alive counterparts, they are also able to move and mimic the sounds, which is a great way of keeping your garden happy, and the ecosystem thriving.
