2 Types Of Lawn Sprinklers

Proper irrigation is key to a healthy lawn. After all, there is no point in having grass or plants growing if you don't take care of them. In addition, some city ordinances might even require that you care for your lawn at a certain level. For these reasons and more, you want to have a tool that helps you take care of your lawn. And sprinklers are part of an overall strategy to ensure that your lawn is growing, day after day.

There are a number of sprinklers that can help you achieve a healthy lawn. Sprinkler installation is something that you can do yourself if you are using a simple plug-and-play type of sprinkler. This type of sprinkler involves simply connecting your garden hose to the sprinkler head and setting it somewhere on your lawn. The simple pressure of the water will flow through the end of the sprinkler and create jets of water.

However, if you are looking for a more advanced type of sprinkler that helps you avoid the eye sore of a hose lying around, then there are other options. And another reason to have a more advanced system is to have better streams of water that reach your lawn better while also offering you convenience. Advanced systems won't need to be moved by hand each time. Instead, you can install them where you want in your lawn, and they simply stay there.

Here are some advanced sprinkler heads you should consider:


This type of sprinkler head will spray the water in very thin layers in a 360 degree angle. The benefit of this type of head is that it stays hidden and out of the way underground until it is needed. This way you avoid tripping hazards or lawn mowing accidents. Through the use of a pressurized system, when you turn the water on for this sprinkler system, it forces it to pop out of the ground and get to work.


Rotor sprinkler heads are very similar to spray heads. However, they differ in that they have a longer jet stream, as well as only shooting in one direction. The pressure from the water forces the sprinkler to rotate back and forth.

Your lawn is an extension of your home. Of course, you want to take great care of it. Whether you are adhering to city ordinances, having family over for the holidays, or simply take pride in your posessions, having a beautiful lawn is rewarding. And a sprinkler system that fits your needs is a great way to get closer to your lawn of your dreams.
