Gardening is an ancient hobby, but you don’t have to stick to old-fashioned tools. With modern tech, your garden will practically tend itself, allowing you to pursue your thumb green without getting dirt under your nails. Below are some of the best home and garden gadgets on the market, whether you’re in need of a robotic lawnmower or a countertop alternative to the traditional garden setup.
