Whether irrigation apps, networked lighting or the automatic control of the lawn mower – the digitalisation of the garden is continuing to forge ahead. The coming spoga+gafa is dedicating an own themed island to the segment for the first time ever in Hall 6, called Smart Gardening. The latest technology trends and innovations will be presented there live and in action.

The garden is turning more and more into living space as a balance to the hectic everyday life. Its design is thus becoming all the more important. The Private Garden Planning Practical Day at the coming spoga+gafa demonstrates how successful garden ideas can be implemented and materials sensibly used.
