Gardening is one of the most popular and noble
hobbies. But, growing and taking care of a plant is a
tedious job as it requires the gardener to ensure that the
plant is watered, fertilized and kept pest-free regularly.
Irrigation depends on elements such as the water
requirement of a plant, the water content of the soil and
weather forecast. Fertilization and pest control might not
be as frequent as irrigation but are essential for the
survival and growth of plants. In today's busy life, it
becomes tough for individuals to monitor and provide
water, fertilizer and pesticides to plants. As a result, the
health of plants deteriorates. Consequently, many of them
dry up and die. We can eliminate this issue by
incorporating Internet Of Things (IoT) and creating an
automated garden-maintaining system that will water,
fertilize and keep the plant pest-free without much human
intervention. It will assist individuals who find it hard to
take good care of their gardens due to busy lifestyles and
other issues. This project aims at creating a garden
maintaining system that will ensure that the basic needs of
a plant are met from time to time with the least amount of
human intervention possible.
