Smart Garden Ideas

Developers of technology have come up with many things that have been amazing in the last few years that affect our everyday lives. Among the new innovations are smart products to make your gardening simpler. These are meant to make caring for your garden less of a chore and they will free up more time for you to sit and relax in the sunshine.

Smart Garden Ideas

Lawns

There is now a robotic lawnmower that will cut the lawn while you are not even there.  It can cover an area of 1000sq.m with just one charge and is so quiet you can still hear yourself speak when it is in operation. It is also clever enough to monitor the weather and will schedule its weekly mowing routine accordingly.

For some people, this does not get over other problems though. For instance, if you are a hay fever sufferer, freshly cut grass can be an irritant that will cause your condition to worsen. One way around this is to have artificial lawns laid and if you consider hay fever vs artificial grass, you will soon realise the number of benefits to this option. Although artificial grass will not cure hay fever it can help to reduce the effects of grass pollen for sufferers and mean they do not have to hide themselves away when the grass-cutting season starts.

Watering

If you get fed up with using a hose or watering can around your garden perhaps it is time to consider a smart watering system. There is a system on the market that can control up to 16 separate sprinkler valves, which will allow you to schedule when your garden gets a drink. You can set it into operation from an app on your phone, no matter where you are in the world, or you can schedule it to work at regular intervals.

This smart watering system will take notice of the local weather reports and will not operate if rain is due. It can also measure the moisture levels in the soil so that you can be certain that your plants will get enough, or not too much, water at the right times.

Lighting

Smart lighting works with sensors that detect that it is getting dark and switch the lights on. They can be used to illuminate a pool area or any part of the grounds around your home. You will never have to search for the light switch again if you have smart lighting installed, but can always have pathways and drives lit to make them safer places to walk when night falls.

Chainsaw Lessons

There are not many things you cannot learn online these days including virtual chainsaw lessons that will hopefully prevent you from harming yourself when trimming hedges or cutting down trees, which are ideal if you can’t get to classes in person. They are vital for staying safe in the garden

There are smart things all around us without us even realising it. The benefits of these smart gardening aids you would notice though, and feel the benefits of an easier gardening experience.
