About This Project

CHALLENGE

Create an application that enables professional and home gardeners to identify and select plant bulbs quickly and easily based on a broad list of criteria.  Ensure that it’s equally simple to make a list of “Favorites” as it is to make a “Shopping List” for ordering the next season’s bulbs.

SOLUTION

The Information Architecture was done to streamline the task of finding and discovering bulbs into a more interactive and visual experience. Competitive analysis found only awkward and time consuming directories.

The mobile app allows the user to search by category or keyword: growing conditions (light, moisture, zone), color, size, blooming season. One can filter and sort results and reference by photo/image with a write-up on each varietal. Key attributes common to all bulbs are shown in iconic form for quick reference.

Features

  • Mark selections as a Favorite
  • Create an alarm for buying/planting
  • Auto zonefinder via phone GPS
  • Links to list of local (GPS/yelp) or online nurseries (Google)
