This project mainly focuses on implementing automatic self watering system in the irrigation fields and vertical gardens. In order to supersede manual activities and making work easier, we will make modified plant watering structure. It will empower all of our plants to accomplish their fullest potential similarly as preserving water. Using sprinklers, spill makers, or a blend of both, we can structure a system that is ideal for each plant in our yard. For execution of programmed plant watering framework, we will utilize blend of sprinkler frameworks, channels, and spouts. This undertaking utilizes the Raspberry Pi 3 model B. It will be modified to detect moisture dimension of plants at explicit instance of time. In the event that the dampness content is not precisely decided breaking point which is predefined according to explicit plant's water need by then needed proportion of water is given till it accomplishes edge. The framework will be customized to water plants two times each day. Framework will be planned so that it will report its ebb and flow status just as remind the client to add water to the tank. These warnings can be made through portable application or any site.
