Best Sprinkler For the Lawn

GreenPal Lawn Care Watering

When you are looking at watering your lawn, finding the right sprinkler is important. The right sprinkler will conserve water, helping both you and the environment, while also making sure that your lawn gets all the water it needs. In general, your lawn should get about one inch of water per week, so the right sprinkler is important. There are three types to choose from:  Keep in mind, your watering needs will vary based on what part of the country you live in.  Water and lawn care needs in Atlanta Georgia will be different, from how much water your lawn will need in St. Petersburg Florida.

  1. Oscillating Sprinkler: The most famous type of sprinkler, it does a great job of watering in a rectangle pattern, and it can water up to 4,000 square feet with high enough water pressure. The problem is that due to the curving of the water, a lot of the water will miss the mark and at the end of each cycle, puddles can develop. This is especially true in cheaper models. You need a model that has at least 15 spray jets for good coverage, and a model that goes back and forth quickly without pausing. This will prevent puddles.
  2. Stationary Sprinkler: This is designed for small areas and it can have a pattern that is circular, rectangular or square. It is the type that kids love to jump through. The good thing about this sprinkler is that it is quite cheap and works well when there is little pressure. The bad thing about this sprinkler is that it can clog easily, and usually has a plastic frame that does not last very long.
  3. Pulsating Sprinkler: This model shoots a jet of water in a circular area and it can handle up to 10,000 square feet of room, with high enough water pressure. It is very good for spaces that are rounded or in an irregular shape. It can cover any size arc over that area, and the water rarely sits in puddles on the lawn. The problem is that it is noisier than other types of sprinklers, and it doesn't work under low pressure conditions.

These three types of sprinklers differ in price and capabilities, but if you can find the right one for your yard, you will be able to water your lawn without wasting water. Wasted water is bad for the environment, it is bad for your lawn and it is bad for your wallet. The right sprinkler will water all the lawn, without missing anything, while minimizing the waste of water hitting sidewalks or driveways. Find the right sprinkler for you and your lawn, and you and your lawn will be very happy.

It is all part of a good management plan for your lawn, courtesy of Your GreenPal.
