34 Automated Gardening Innovations

From Self-Watering Indoor Gardens to Smart Herb Gardens

— August 29, 2014 — Eco
Consumers are becoming more attune to the idea of growing their own produce, which is being supported by automated gardening innovations that place convenience and efficiency of the utmost importance. The urban consumer -- for the most part -- doesn't have a green thumb; they are accustomed to purchasing their goods from a store and eating in a restaurant. As more become curious about a lifestyle that's a little bit greener, automated gardening is helping to effectively transform a condo dweller into someone who's able to grow some produce.

Topics like food scarcity and pesticide usage has brought about a rise in the number of consumers gardening, so it's likely not far off that we see plenty more trying their hand at the task with these automated gardening innovations.
