The Growth of Smart Gardens

With smartphones, cars and homes it seems like everything is getting smarter. So why stop there? The garden, a once untouched battlefield has also begun to see the takeover of smart gadgets. But who can complain as the essence of smart tech is to make life easier which means a lot less running around and a bit more TLC. In fact, it’s not just about making life easier. There are new initiatives which allow you to record your soil’s health which ultimately can help save earth’s soil*! You could help save the world without lifting a green finger.

But outdoor technology isn’t just about the soil and high street retailer Robert Dyas has a whole range of gadgets to make your garden smarter. Whether it’s energy-saving solar lighting, water recycling features or weather-resistant planters there’s no reason why your outside paradise should be left behind.

The plant reader

What better place to start your garden revolution than with your particularly treasured shrubs? Maintaining beautiful plants can be challenging and you’re expected to be a plant ‘reader’ knowing exactly what they need 24/7. Enter the VegTrug Grow Care Garden (£44.99). This pocket-sized garden gadget tells you all you need to know through its app, everything from soil moisture content, fertility level, temperature and light intensity. There is also a smart solution for your indoor flora with the smaller, lighter VegTrug Grow Care Home (£34.99) which will take care of your small indoor flower pots.

Struggle to trust weather reports? The Netatmo Personal Weather Station (£139.00) gives you instant, accurate information. This ultra-local climate data device measures temperature, humidity, air quality and CO2 levels which can all be viewed on your smartphone. Ideal for a number of applications, for example, protecting your plants in low temperatures and knowing the right time to hang the washing out.

Time to get mowtivated

For those with a lawn, managing it can be a time-consuming nightmare and it only takes a couple of days to return to an overgrown grass jungle. But picking the right lawnmower to do the job can be a tricky task, or is it? The ideal combination of a cordless, battery powered mowing machine is within reach in the Flymo Mighti-Mo 300 Li-Ion Battery Cordless Lawnmower (Was £187.49 now £149.99). This efficient grass cutter can cover 250m² in a single charge and takes no more than two hours to power up ready for its next encounter.

Water you think about this?

With all this extra time on your hands thanks to technology taking the strain, it’s about time you start admiring your garden. For those with a pond in their garden Sunjet Solar-Powered 50cm Water Pump (£54.99) is a welcome addition. Two LEDs switch on automatically after dusk to make for a striking display at night all powered by a detached LED Solar Panel.

But size doesn’t always matter when it comes to water features as this Smart Garden Wishing Well Fountain (Was £119.99 now £79.99) can bring a little bit of wow factor to the garden. This small self-contained decorative water feature can add a bit of wonder and intrigue to the garden.

Space saviours

The Smart Garden Pixie Pot Planter (Was £12.99 now £8.49) can add a bit of fantasy to the garden by not only providing a home for your flowers but also for the fairies and elves. This little weather resistant planter can add some enchantment to any garden it calls home.

If flowers are not an all-year-round feature for you then the VegTrug Poppy Raised Planter (Was £29.99 now £19.99) would make the ideal match. When space is a problem this planter rises above it with its foldable frame and it can be stored away over winter saving space all year round.

Sticking on the collapsible theme this Quest Packaway Medium Slatted Table (Was £59.99 now £24.99) can add a bit of flexibility to the patio. It’s rolled up table top and foldable legs mean it takes up hardly any space when compact allowing for an ever changing outdoor space.

In the moonlight

Finally, after you’ve smartened up your garden, you’re going to want to admire it in the moonlight. For the more stealthy gardeners, these Smart Garden Rock Spotlight – 4 Pack (Was £22.99 Was £9.99 now £8.99) blend into their environment. Their rock design will camouflage them into the garden and their smart light sensors mean they turn on and off automatically using the power of the sun to keep them going.

Not wanting to hide behind a rock and instead make a bit of a statement? Well, the Gemini Solar Wind Spinner (Was £29.99 now £19.99) can add that style you need in your garden. Fully solar powered, this outdoor feature can make a real impact with its spinning arms creating patterns in the darkness.
