It always happens like this: when you start gardening, you have to ask yourself a lot of questions. No matter if you are a beginner or a green-fingered pro, you always feel the need to have a lot of information about plants (will they need more sun or more shade?), Flowers (when is it better to plant them?), types of grass (will it need a lot of maintenance?) and bushes (how much will they grow?).
Fortunately, there is an app for everything these days and of course there are for gardening too, from planning to planting. And we have listed a few here, the ones we found most useful.
Who could give better advice than the Royal Horticultural Society? English gardeners have created an app to help plant, grow and harvest fruit, vegetables and herbs.
This app can be used to identify a plant based on its leaves. A large library of close-up, detailed shots will help you figure out which plants you are standing in front of. Developed by the University of Maryland, the Smithsonian Institute and Columbia University, it is very reliable.
This app is able to analyze the soil to determine its condition and then give advice on which plants will do best in that piece of land. Essential for beginners.
Do you want to make a vegetable garden? Do you want to plant fruit in your garden? Garden Plan Pro gives tips for better planning crop rotation and analyzes local weather for optimal sowing and harvesting dates.
Once you’ve planted everything right, this app can help you create a care calendar for what’s in your yard and you can chat with the experts for more advice.
If you upload your garden image, this app completes it by suggesting any design elements. It is useful for those who want to renovate the garden with DIY.
With hand-drawn elements and augmented reality, it allows you to redesign your garden and then ask for suggestions to improve it. Fun for green designers.
This too, conceived for design, allows you to trace spaces by inserting furniture and details and then, in the pro version, it records all the project hypotheses.
Garden Tags is the app to use once your garden is finished, all planted. In addition to identifying plants, he gives cultivation tips and tree care instructions. Think of it as a sort of planner and plotter for everything that lives in your garden.
