Today we are sharing the best lawn sprinkler and irrigation system we recommend to get the perfect lawn. Below we discuss what an irrigation system is and suggestions of different types of sprinklers and soaker hoses to water your grass.
What is an Irrigation System?
There are two different styles of irrigation systems to choose from, traditional sprinkler-based systems and drip irrigation systems. To irrigate smaller areas, we recommend drip irrigation which is the ideal complement to traditional irrigation. Rather than irrigating large areas, a drip system is set up to water very small, specific areas like garden beds, specific plants with different watering requirements and patio plants. Drip systems use little water and discourage weed growth. If you have both a lawn and a garden, using both a sprinkler-based and drip irrigation system will allow both areas to be watered with the correct amount of water.
Best Lawn Sprinkler System
Traditional sprinkler-based system are well suited to watering large areas of grass and large garden beds that have plants with similar watering needs. The best lawn sprinkler is an Oscillating sprinkler which are relatively cheap to purchase and are an effective way to help water large areas of grass and large garden beds that have plants with similar watering needs.
Please keep in mind that any sprinkler is better than no sprinkler.
Why it’s Recommended to Use a Soaker Hose
If you have both a lawn and a garden, using both a sprinkler-based and drip irrigation system will allow both areas to be watered with the correct amount of water. Another recommend is soaker hoses as they deliver the water from close to the ground allowing more water to go exactly where you want it, and avoid watering your concrete targeting specific areas to avoid waste from overspray.
While not the fanciest solution, the soaker hose is the simplest and most trusted way for you to get the water where you need it when it comes to watering your lawn. The best lawn sprinkler doesn’t have to be the most expensive.
One final tip for watering your lawn is using a tap timer. We suggest the Mechanical Tap Timer that sets a water time up to two hours automatically shutting off, or an automatic Digital Tap Timer that has a digital display to suit your needs. This one is perfect for those who travel quite frequently, doesn’t have time or isn’t sure how much to water your lawn using the best lawn sprinkler.
