Jardin Botánico en Montjuic-Jardinería de precisión

Nuestros sensores de humedad se adaptan a todo tipo de instalaciones, así lo comprueba el jardín botánico de Montjuic que usa nuestra tecnología para diversos tipos de plantas.

The garden is spread over 14 hectares of land within the Montjuic Park.

Parts of the botanical garden

Most of the species run through a sample of Mediterranean climate plants.

The Mediterranean climate is not exclusive to the Mediterranean Sea environment.
It is characterized for a long and quite dry summer, mild winters with average temperatures and rains in spring and autumn.

Este tipo de clima se encuentra en distintas zonas del planeta, que son las representadas en el jardín botánico de Montjuic:

  • Canary Islands.
  • South Africa.
  • Australia.
  • Chile.
  • California.
  • Mediterráneo oriental.
  • Mediterráneo occidental.

The highlight is the variety of plant species from different parts of the world. Very pleasant walk for a different approach to the diversity of nature.

A visit in spring is recommended with the plants in bloom and the different shades of colors that we can see.

Control of the different areas of the botanical garden

Not everything needs the same irrigation, it depends on the species that we find:

  • Trees and palms with deeper roots and deeper sensors.
  • Lawn with buried and shallow sensors. High humidity is always needed.
  • Carpet and vivacious plants: they require a controlled irrigation.
  • Hedges and shrubs, with less need for irrigation.
  • Flower groups with controlled irrigation, especially in spring and summer when they bloom.

Garden management

The priority is to optimize irrigation in all sectors. Maintain pleasant viewing facilities for the visitor while seeking intelligent water savings.

Drip irrigation throughout the park is controlled by humidity sensors which we hope to expand shortly .

Update of humidity and temperature sensors in April 2021

After obtaining magnificent results in controlling the humidity and temperature of the soil in the gardens, we expanded the control areas with probes at different depths, depending on the root system of the plants and the amount of humidity they require.
