Beginner or pro, gardening can be a rough learning experience with a steep learning curve. Imagine spending an entire year planning, preparing, and maintaining a garden to have a sub par result. Does this sound familiar?
Kalden Ficklin is the founder of the app Garden Pro Planner (available both on iOS and Android). After years of trial and error, he decided to research, reach out to professionals and create an app where gardeners can save time and have a better chance at a successful garden. The features seen in the app were influenced by multiple gardening groups and is tailored to the home gardener.
On average, 40% of Americans grow their own home garden, and save $600+ per year on groceries.
Gardening has also been proven to reduce anxiety and depression, and can be a very fulfilling hobby, and for some even a revenue stream. Aside from saving money on groceries, garden enthusiasts also can earn a decent amount converting their entire backyard into a garden and selling at farmers markets, or selling the seeds online. Some can earn $1000+ per month doing this part time.
The app is packed full of features to help from small single plot gardens to full backyard gardens. The app also has a physical companion notebook with pages that help design out a garden, list out seasonal, and monthly tasks, and more.
For those that are looking to take gardening by the horns this year, this is a must have for any garden. See more at https://thegardenplanner.app/
