What To Look For In A Sprinkler

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 5 July , 2017

There’s more – or there should be more – to selecting a sprinkler for your lawn than running to the store and picking up whatever has the longest hose.

In this issue, we’ll provide a few tips that will hopefully help you to make a more wise decision in your sprinkler shopping.

The 411 on Sprinklers

Here’s a breakdown on the main types of available sprinklers.

  • Stationary Sprinklers
    Perfect for watering small areas, stationary sprinklers have small holes along the sprinkler head for distributing water. While they’re relatively inexpensive and simple to use, you need to keep them moving to prevent flooding.
  • Oscillating Sprinklers
    These sprinklers resemble a metronome, with a metal tube waving back and fort as it distributes water. These are great sprinklers for rectangular lawns. As for irregular shaped areas, though, a lot of water will probably miss the intended area.
  • Pulsating Sprinklers
    With a rotating head and a pulsating water jet, this sprinkler does a very good job of covering large areas that are curved or irregularly-shaped. On the other hand, it’s a bit noisier than other sprinkler types, and while it’s great for rounded areas, it’s not as good with rectangular lots.
  • Rotary Sprinklers
    With several arms tipped with sprinkler heads, this sprinkler makes good economical sense. It’s particularly good for large gardens and large open areas. Potential cons for rotary sprinklers include it needing more water pressure than other models and it taking longer to do the job because of a lower application rate.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
