The best gadgets for your garden

For a lot of us, our gardens are our pride and joy. Big or small, paved or filled with greenery, we can spend hours every day just making our gardens comfortable and impressive places to be. From rare plants to Teak Garden Tables, the possibilities are endless but we’ve decided to take a different approach. In a world run on technology, why not bring this from our homes and out into the garden? Here is our list of some of the best gadgets for your garden!

Garden Wildlife Camera

Each season brings with it a different wealth of wildlife, and each wealth of wildlife has its own quirks and lifecycle that are fascinating to watch. Whether you’re looking to capture the first flap of a baby bird’s wings, or the congressional march of ants along your pathway, a Garden Wildlife Camera can show you it all. Just connect it up and watch the footage live, or record it to watch later if you want to catch some of the overnight action that takes place within the boundaries of your little back garden paradise. Even if you’re lacking in greenery, you can still attract plenty of wildlife, so if you have any interest, it can be worth investing.

BBQ in a bag

Disposable BBQ’s are a common solution for those with small gardens or not enough money to shell out for a decent barbeque, but have you thought about the “Bag a BBQ?” This device is a portable BBQ with an integrated cooler bag on the top of the bag that can keep your drinks cool while you’re cooking. This grill is small, but the perfect size for picnics or camping so for those of you with small families, it could be perfect for your back garden too!

Mac Allister 600W Electric Grass Trimmer

This particular grass strimmer is proof that you don’t need to shell out hundreds of pounds for good technology. At only £40, this strimmer does everything you’d need it to. It can trim smaller spaces, tidy up your lawns quickly and efficiently, and the support wheels are even detachable so you have plenty of flexibility when it comes to roaming your garden with it. It isn’t wireless, but there is a good 6m of cable to give you plenty of room to wander.

Parrot Pot

The Parrot Pot is a bit of an investment, but if you have a particular plant that is notoriously difficult to care for or that you’re willing to spend the money on, this pot can be well worth the investment. It will monitor the plant and whether it needs water or sunshine, and if you happen to be going away for a while or you’re out of the house for a lot of the day, you can even programme the pot to keep your plant watered for you! This high-tech plant pot will keep you updated and take care of your plant, essentially taking out a lot of the work for you!

Parrot’s Flower Power

The Flower Power is Parrot’s slightly less high tech and ultimately far more affordable approach to monitoring your plants and keeping up to date with what it needs at any time. It can assess the need for water and sunshine, and will send a notification to your phone through the app to inform you if your plant needs care in any way. This small, but ultimately helpful gadget could be well worth its value for money if you find yourself with green fingers!
