For the math challenged gardeners among us, there’s an app for that.
The Garden Buddy iPhone garden app features a number of handy calculators as well as useful planting information. Using the native GPS location services on the iPhone, it provides location-based real time search of garden and landscape supplies and service providers, as well as nearby garden and park attractions.
The worldwide real time mapping feature represents resources within a 50 mile (80 Km) radius of the user’s location. Users receive full details from their category inquiry including: business name, full address, contact information, and distance away. With the click of different buttons in the app, users can directly call the business, add it business to their contacts, display a map with locations clearly marked with highlighted route, and call up a list of turn by turn driving instructions.
Discover community gardens, farmers markets, parks, and interesting new places nearby to shop for your urban garden.
Available from iTunes.
