Growing and maintaining a garden in a traditional matter is completely fine, but if you want to delve deeper into the world of garden gadgets, you’ll be happy to learn that the technology has managed to seep into the green world too. Now that you know that being a “garden geek” is really a thing, let’s explore some cool gadgets to complement the green of your yard.
Smart Irrigation Controller
Using an irrigation system is quite a regular thing in modern gardening, but many claim that this is not the best solution, especially when it comes to drip irrigation – weather pressure is prone to changing and not all plants require the identical amounts of water. In these terms, they are completely right. However, the smart irrigation controller is equipped with a personalized plan, based on your weather patterns, location and vegetation, which means that you can adjust your garden’s water supply without having to take the hose out and do it by hand. Moreover, the smart irrigation controller will likely save you money, by eliminating (or at least decreasing) water wasting!
Fireman’s Nozzle Sprayer
If you like taking things into your own hands, or actually enjoy spending time with your plants, you might prefer a nozzle sprayer over any other irrigation system. Designed to work like a firefighter’s hose, this sprayer is capable of reaching plants that are far away from you, which means that you don’t have to trample over others if you want to water your entire garden.
This unavoidable part of any garden - a leaf rake - helps you to collect leaves, when you want to make your yard shine in its full beauty, but also so that you can use the dried up leaves as mulch. The problem with regular rakes, however, is outlined in the fact that they are extremely prone to clogging, which tends to leave the users spending more time unclogging the tool than actually using it. The clog-resistant rake is equipped with two rows of teeth, stacked in an offset alternating fashion, which not only means that you won’t have to go through the trouble of unclogging it every 5 minutes, but also that you will do the job much faster.
Weeds are a gardener’s worst enemy – they look bad, grow quickly and compromise your beloved plants. What better way to get rid of them than burning them to a crisp? Not only is the weed torch a ton of fun to operate (fire is always fun), but it eliminates the need to use chemicals, which, although they kill pests, can be harmful for your pets, children and beneficial insects. Getting rid of weeds that grow between pavers in patios, sidewalk cracks and rock gardens has never been easier and more fun!
Visual Scare Bird Scare Balloons
On the note of beneficial insects, some animals, like bees for example, help your garden tremendously. Others, like the majority of birds, however, tend to kill your little helpers which can make your garden suffer. There is a lesson to be learned from the good old “scarecrow”. This garden gadget from Bird Control Australia has a goal of frightening the birds away. Designed to look like predators, these balloons will scare off the birds by making them think that they are alive (balloon bobbing and swaying due to the wind). Simple and cost effective – perfect!
Further on the subject of pests, there is a reason why many people are scared of spiders. This gadget is a perfect solution – the spider catcher allows you to grab a spider without getting too close and can be used both outdoors and indoors!
These clever gadgets will help you grow a wonderful garden without breaking the bank. There is no reason to follow the traditional gardening ways in 2021 (unless you really want to), so feel free to delve into the world of garden geeks!
