High-Tech Equipment That Will Make Your Garden Rock

With most of us spending more time at home, attention is turning to the garden. We’re becoming more obsessed with controlling our immediate surroundings since we have fewer options to venture out of the house.

Even though things are grim right now, there are high-tech features that are making gardening more comfortable, better and more environmentally friendly. Here’s what we’re talking about.

Plant Monitors

Imagine if you could discover how your plants were growing using an app on your phone? Well, bizarrely, now you can.

The idea is pretty simple. You place a wireless sensor in the soil, and it then tracks things like the temperature, light levels, soil pH and fertiliser levels. All you have to do is wait for the app to produce a notification telling you that the nitrogen needs topping up and off you go. It completely takes the guesswork out of the process and means that you can rescue plants before they begin to show signs of physical fatigue and malnutrition.

Composite Fencing

Imagine if there was a fence that wasn’t made of perishable materials but also didn’t harm the environment.

Well, it turns out that there is - and it’s called eco friendly fencing.

This new type of fence takes the best of materials and combines them in a way that reduces fence turnover. The result is fewer trees cut down and lower overall emissions - just what you want if you’re concerned about the environment.

Hedge Trimmer Multitools

Trimming your hedges can be a bit of a struggle, even if you’re using a motorised trimmer.

While you might have a great attachment for your device that works on some bushes, that doesn’t mean it’ll work with all of them. Often you need different types of clippers.

Now, though, you don’t need to keep a set of trimming devices. Instead, you can simply swap out one blade for another, depending on your needs. That means less expense and more time getting things done in the garden.

Garden Planning Apps

Planning out a garden used to be something people did on sheets of paper, but it was always fraught with problems. What if you wanted to rearrange your layout?

Now, though, you can get garden planning apps that do a lot more. You can fiddle around with garden features and change how you set things out how you like until you get it perfect.

Many of these apps come with intuitive interfaces and hundreds of different textures for various plants. Ultimately, you should be able to get a sense of what your garden will look like from an aerial view.

Pole Saws

Nothing is more annoying than being unable to trim bushes and trees that have become overgrown. But in the average garden, it happens all the time. You simply don’t have any tools that allow you to pare back overgrowth high up in the canopy or around your roof.

With a pole saw, though, you can get around this issue. You just hoist it into the air and then let the trimmer do its job.
