If you remember your grandma wearing a big sunhat and thick gloves digging for hours in her garden trying to keep her plants alive, you’re one of us. If you’re also a plant parent who struggles with their garden plants, you’re one of us as well. But all that is about to come to an end when you meet these five gardening gadgets that will turn your life around!
1. Parrot Pot
These plant pots are straight out of a sci-fi movie! They are equipped with sensors which allow them to care for your plants on their own. Parrot Pots are also self-watering. And you know what that means! That you no longer run the risk of drowning or scorching your favorite flowers and herbs. You can also go on a prolonged vacation and not worry because these little beauties will take care of everything!
Let’s talk more sensors because they’re just so cool! PlantLink is a small device based on sensors that you have to insert directly into the soil. Once there, it will detect the levels of humidity. Taking into account what plants you have in your garden, PlantLink will notify you on your phone when it’s time to water your garden. No more wasted time or water for that matter!
3. ScareCrow Motion Activated Animal Repellent
First of all, no it doesn’t look like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. It’s a tiny, black gardening gadget connected to a hose that uses a jet of water to keep all pests away from your beautiful flowers. The ScareCrow can detect anything from cats to deer and repel them from your garden and summerhouse in a very gentle way.
You might have already guessed what this one does based on its name alone. Yes, it’s a tiny robot that mows your lawn all by itself! The future is finally here! All those long hours spent in the sun doing this most hated of tasks are gone. The Robotic Lawn Mower has a lithium battery and can get through half an acre of grass in almost no time at all.
Apart from that, the Robomow is so smart that it can even make the decision if it should mow your lawn in the rain, taking into account how humid it is outside. You can set it to work on a slope as well, provided it’s a 35 degree angle.
5. Solar Auto Parasol
This traditional looking umbrella holds a little secret. It has a solar panel right at the top that charges if you leave it in the garden sitting in the sun. The umbrella also has a set of lights underneath which you can use plus a remote control to operate it. But the main attraction is the clean energy it uses that you won’t have to pay anything for!
There is absolutely no doubt that gardening has taken the path toward high technology. We can only sit back and watch as these tech gardening gadgets make our lives easier and our plants more lush. Which one of these gadgets is your favorite?
