3 projects with Arduino to maintain our garden

Apples with chips

The world of gardening has been revitalized with Free Hardware. This is thanks to the possibility of being able to maintain only the garden without the need for human action. There are currently many projects that use Free Hardware in the agricultural or gardening fieldThey all work but many are for certain situations or for certain crops.

Here we show you three projects that serve all areas, regardless of having a certain crop or a certain area.


Garduino is a very interesting project because it helps us have the plant with water without having to be near. An interesting project to be able to go on vacation without asking the neighbor to water the plants. Garduino uses a humidity and heat sensor, in such a way that when the sun is accentuated on the plant or the humidity of the ground, the Arduino board activates the water pump and waters the plant soil. Garduino we can find it in this link.

Own irrigation system

Current irrigation systems are very expensive, unless we want to obtain a cheap irrigation system that consumes as much or more than we do not have it. Arduino can serve us as an irrigation manager and for less money than professional systems. In addition, thanks to the software and Wi-Fi modules, Arduino can activate the irrigation system without us being present. This project is very interesting for professionals in agriculture or gardening. You can find more information at this link.

Gardening in the kitchen

This project is very curious because it allows us transform an old wine cooler into a portable greenhouse that we can use in the kitchen. This small greenhouse will allow us have spices and aromatic plants in the kitchen and everything fresh, without additives or anything similar. Sure, not everyone uses a wine cooler, but it's a good recycling project, don't you think? You can find it in your github repository.

There are many projects related to the world of plants, but of course these three projects are interesting and important for those who love this world. Also, everyone needs an Arduino board, a fairly inexpensive and totally free board.
