Abstract : In this hectic life schedule of mankind, finding time to refresh has turned out to be an infeasible task. But it is vital for maintaining our productivity, not just in professional life but also in social life. Gardening is surely a leisure time activity which involves both the physical and psychological aspects. On the other hand, it shows justice to our environmental obligation of keeping the planet green. However the practice of gardening needs some sincere investment of our time and care. But we may not always be available to our garden. In this paper we present a smart low cost wireless digital gardening technique. The technique uses an automated system which intimates us about the whole related parameters for keeping our garden nourished. This paper also describes the integration of WSNs with IOT technology and also determining a yield factor which can be used for increasing productivity in similar environments. We can also monitor the soil moisture, temperature, light, pH, and water level through a web interface from any remote location. Thus we can have control over our garden even without being physically present. This spares us from all worries regarding gardening and water scarcity. This paper describes the hardware and software architecture of a fully automated gardening system, which uses motes for data acquisition, aggregation and communication. The paper also discusses the detailed implementation of the system supported by both hardware and software description. Finally, the paper concludes with the performance analysis of system with the previously existing gardening system.
