While it is still winter, it is possible that you have started to receive those seed catalogs, and stores across Atlanta have also stocked up on seed packets, planting tools, and other gardening equipment. Not everybody loves gardening, of course. The reality is that having a beautiful garden takes a lot of hard work. Indeed, many people find it much easier to simply find a company like True Green to do the work for them. If you live outside of the Knoxville area, you will have to make an effort to find a good company for yourself. If, however, you are one of those people that has green thumbs or simply enjoys gardening, the following may be of interest to you. Here, Trugreen reviews some of smart gardening options.
Pest Control and Security Sensors
If you have noticed in the past that your plants are being nibbled on, then you could catch the animal doing this red handed with pest control sensors. This may sound a bit over the top, but it is something to consider. Indeed, one rodent can undo all the hard work you have done by coming back night after night to snack on your plants. Key features of a good sensor include:
Compatibility with any other smart device you have.
Trugreen Reviews Robot Lawn Mowers
The vast majority of people don’t enjoy mowing the lawn. That is why they hire the little boy down the road to do it for them! However, there are now various robot lawn mowers available and they really take the stress out of doing this job, and the worry of the little boy down the road doing it wrong. The robot lawn mowers are very much like the Rumba hoovers. Just as those hoovers, however, they are limited in how large the size of the yard is, and they require some sort of wire fence, or they will end up at the end of the street. Also, you do have to pick up any debris yourself first, and if you have any slopes over 20 degrees, they won’t work. They can also set you back as much as $3,000, so do make sure your properly review them on sites such as Yelp, Glassdoor, or Consumer Affairs. First.
Sprinklers are great, but they have limitations as well. For instance, if you are going on holiday, there is a chance that they will come on even if it is raining. Using a smart irrigation system instead, therefore, is a much better idea. Some of the features to look for include:
That it comes with a user friendly app.
That it links to weather forecasts so you can set it remotely and appropriately.
That it measures soil moisture.
That it integrates with other smart appliances you have.
Soil sensors are perfect for people who want to make sure their plants have the best possible conditions in terms of nutrients, pH, and moisture. Good sensors can even track ambient light and temperature. Key features to look for include:
Support for data interpretation.
Smart irrigation integration.
