Garden Irrigation Systems

Types Of Garden Irrigation Systems

Some of the popular garden irrigation systems are briefly discussed below to help you make an informed decision when having to choose one of the many garden irrigation systems available.

Portable Garden Irrigation Systems

The obvious benefit of portable sprinklers is the mobility offered. You can place the sprinklers at specific areas requiring water. All that is needed is a hose and head. There are numerous types to select from such as the turret which has several heads which spray in circular motion over various lengths. The second type is the alternating sprinkler that has a bar that can be set on a specific height. A third type is one that uses a pulsating action which has an adjustable spray area. The fourth type is one that sprays in a rectangular area and moves along a specific path set by the hose. The downside of portable sprinklers is that you have to move them from one area to another to ensure that the whole garden gets water.

Automated Underground Garden Irrigation Systems

If you rent a place, you most probably will not want to invest in an underground sprinkler system and as such will benefit from the portable types. For the homeowner who wants convenience and wants to ensure that all the areas receive the right amounts of water at specific times, the underground sprinkler systems will be ideal. Such systems have timer units and have adjustable pressure settings.  Not suited for cold areas, but rather for the warmer areas of the country, the underground systems have the obvious advantage of not having to move them around and having more efficient water usage.
