Gardena unveils mobile control system for watering and mowing

Gardena has announced its latest system designed to control irrigation and robotic lawnmowers via a mobile phone or tablet and an internet router.

Part of a range of similarly-designed products, the innovative system features an intelligent Gardena smart Gateway, which communicates with the Gardena smart Sensor, the Gardena smart Water Control and the Gardena smart Sileno via a high-powered antenna. With the help of the free smart App for smartphones and tablets, connected devices can be controlled from anywhere and at any time: users can turn them on or off, check their status or change their configuration.

The smart Sensor produces live data, for example on soil moisture, outdoor temperature, and light intensity, making it easier for gardeners not only to plan when to mow or water their lawn, but to also adapt their routine to potential storms. The corresponding mobile app will be available free of charge for iOS and Android users, and will be continually updated with new features.

NEW watering solution for small gardens and roof terraces

Gardena have introduced hose and hose box in a new format for the simple and convenient irrigation of small gardens or on roof terraces.

The new Gardena Terrace Spiral Hose is a solution for the irrigation of mini-gardens and plants on balconies and terraces. The 7.5m hose retracts to ist original shape after use, for storage on a bracket integrated into the Standard Hose Connector, so it can be stowed neatly at the tap. It is available as a set with the original Gardena System Parts and Gun Nozzle. A set with the Gardena Watering Sprayer will also be available.

The new lightweight and compact Gardena Terrace Hose Box carries 10m of 11mm hose and has a fold-in carrying handle. Easily transported, it is equipped with a 1.5m connection fitting, the required original Gardena System Parts and a Gun Nozzle.

The new Gardena Adapter for Indoor Taps is ideal for users without outdoor taps.

NEW hand tools with improved ergonomics

Gardena has also introduced new Classic Hand Tools, new Comfort Hand Tools and new combisystem Hand Tools.

Hobby gardeners have placed their trust in The Gardena combisystem across more than 40 years. In order to make handling even more pleasant, Gardena has once again improved the ergonomics. Whether large or small tools, every handle is compatible with every tool, and is guaranteed to connect without wobbling. Gardena provides a 25-year warranty for these products.

A new ergonomically shaped combisystem handle, easily attached via a soft plastic screw, features soft plastic elements and a rounded handle end.

The new Gardena Classic Hand Tools and  Comfort Hand Tools both benefit from new, ergonomically shaped handles that lie perfectly in the hand, the former with angled handle ends to prevent slipping, and the latter with rounded handle ends that resist slipping, even when hands are damp. Both ranges have a Duroplast coating for a long life.
