Gardenagility: Exploring Agile Gardening

Agile Gardening & Software Engineering

I’ve been a software engineer since 2009, but I’ve been gardening since 2005. Surprisingly, gardening is a lot like software engineering. As a gardener, you have goals, you have requirements, you must design gardens, you must construct your garden, and you must maintain everything. Software engineering provides a fantastic process and structure for completing garden projects. Furthermore, software development methodologies (like agile) provide techniques that can help with garden planning and maintenance.

But you don’t need to be a software engineer to understand agile gardening! In our blog, we share our own garden projects and structure all of the information in terms of requirements, design, implementation, validation & verification, and maintenance.

With Gardenagility, our goal is to share our experiences and lessons learned about how to be organized, structured, and continuously improve upon gardening skills! We want to help you learn and practice agile gardening!

Garden Project Lifecycle

As gardeners, we can follow the same phases of the software development lifecycle when working on garden projects. Every project starts with a goal. Next, these goals are translated into features, or requirements. Once we know our requirements, we can then plan and design our project. With a solid design, we can then work on implementation or construction of our project, then validate & verify that we built a suitable end-product. Lastly, the project outcome must be preserved through routine maintenance.
