First Day of Spring – We have your smart garden tech

Welcome to the first day of spring. It doesn't really feel like it in many areas, but it soon will. It's going to start warming up, and—with all of this social distancing time you're spending indoors—you're really going to want to get outside. With the possible extra time you have on your hands, why not get around to starting that garden with some of these gardening tools?

First Day of Spring – We have your smart garden tech
Rotofarm Architectural Soil-Free Circular Farm in Use

We’re still on the early side of social distancing and the extreme measures we’re all forced to take to combat the spread of coronavirus. But slowing a pandemic (and hopefully stopping it in its tracks) is a good thing. You might already be itching to get outside, especially since it’s the first day of spring. And, while many of us are unable to drive to the park due to travel restrictions, one of the things we can still do is get out in our hards and get our hands in the dirt. To grow and create and foster new life. And there is some great smart garden tech that can help you.

Perhaps you’ve never gardened before, and you’re worried about forgetting to water your plants. Don’t worry; there are planters for that. And we even have smart lights that can motion activate to scare some of those critters away if you don’t want to invest in putting a fence or chicken wire around your garden. Unfortunately, no matter what happens in your day-to-day life, your grass is still going to grow. And we’re guessing your HOA isn’t going to get any less lenient regarding the state of your lawn.

So take a deep breath, get the supplies you need, and get gardening with our smart garden tech suggestions.

Brightlites Ultra-Bright Solar Garden Light offers 60 lumens of light

Truly illuminate your outdoor area with the Brightlites Ultra-Bright Solar Garden Light. Unlike other outdoor lights that are typically too dim to be useful, these bright lights offer an impressive 60 lumens. Not only that, but they also disperse light in all directions. In fact, Brightlites create a six-foot diameter of bright, even light. These solar lights can produce 60 lumens for a whopping six hours on a full charge. Best of all, Brightlites run on solar power, so you never have to worry about recharging. 

Rotofarm Architectural Soil-Free Circular Farm takes gardening to the future

Enjoy fresh organic vegetables right at home with the Rotofarm Architectural Soil-Free Circular Farm. Innovative and striking, this futuristic garden features 1.5 meters of growing space.

Thanks to this clever engineering, there is no gravity, meaning your plants can flourish. In the center of the Rotofarm is a built-in light so the plants inside get plenty of direct light. There are also four different light zones, so each plant gets what it needs. Hidden inside this smart garden tech are reservoirs for both nutrients and water that will automatically reach the plants.
