The Madrid botanist installs in his gardens irrigation optimized by sensors with real-time information. Our company, with its humidity, conductivity and temperature probes, offers an important way of controlling plants in general and gardens in particular.
Characteristics that sensor-controlled irrigation offers in gardening
The botanical gardens of Madrid present a wide variety of plants of all kinds:
- Bushes: such as hedges with small trunks.
- Herbaceous: from grass to medicinal plants, they don't have trunks, for example lavender.
- Tuberous: does that emerge from a tuber such as begonias.
- Bulbous: they emerge from a bulb such as tulips and daffodils.
- Aerial: those whose roots are uncovered such as orchids.
- Climbing plants: they need a support to latch on, such as ivy.
- Cactuses: they accumulate water and endure arid climates.
- Flowers: they can be seasonal or annual.
- Trees: with a trunk with different functions, decorative and to provide shade and color.
Given the complexity of caring for each of them, Plantae offers solutions for garden humidity control, because With strategically placed sensors, we can measure humidity, soil temperature and conductivity, offering the possibility of controlling each block of plants, depending on the amount of water it requires.
The irrigation controlled by probes allows the plants not to suffer water stress and the needs of the garden can be known in real time, both in terms of humidity, soil temperature and conductivity.
In order to correctly optimize garden water with sensor-controlled irrigation, it is necessary to properly design the garden, know the need for irrigation of each plant and maintain proper cleaning and pruning of each one.
Diseño con sensores del botánico de Madrid
- Divide the garden into areas that have plants with the same water needs.
- Take into account the aesthetics of the garden without forgetting the three basic blocks of water demand: high, moderate and low.
- Choose the right plants for the amount of water we have.
- Consider the climate and the number of hours of sunshine.
- The use of native plants, acclimatized to the environment, is highly recommended.
- Within the garden itself, take into account the different areas such as: shady, sunny, sandy, facing north...
- Consider the depth of the soil because it influences the rooting of the plants.
With these factors and the contribution of sensors, we can control the ideal growth of the plants and save water and energy at the same time that we will have much more attractiveness, flowering and health in our garden.
Controlled irrigation is not only important to save water, but also to avoid flooding that will cause the plant to suffer from diseases or its roots deteriorate.
Plantae's experience in gardening and sensor-controlled irrigation
Our humidity and temperature sensors are already giving results in agriculture in more than half of Spain, but other sectors such as:
We can provide solutions adapted to each type of garden and in each climate. Our teams carry out a detailed study of the surface to be controlled, using satellite images if necessary.
Our sensors are equally suited to sprinkler or drip irrigation. They can also be buried to take care of the aesthetics of the garden and at different depths if the type of plant requires it.
The Madrid botanist was carrying out tests with our first sensors, and given their good results, we have placed others that are more up-to-date, outdoors and buried, depending on the type of flower bed to be controlled.
