Irrigation Systems For The Home Lawn

There are various types of irrigation systems for the home lawn. A few of them are briefly discussed below to help you make an informed decision regarding the selection of irrigation systems that will fit your particular requirements.

Swing Sprinklers

Working on an alternating mode, these sprinkles spray a thin curtain of water over the area. The arm alternates over the specific area. The spray radius can be adapted. Most suitable for larger gardens or lawns, the swing sprinklers are also ideal for freshly seeded lawn areas. Go for the higher priced models to ensure uniform water distribution.

Stationary Irrigation Systems

If you have a small garden or several smaller areas requiring irrigation, the stationary types will work just fine. The water is normally sprayed through pattern holes. You need to check the water pressure in your area when selecting one of these types as the force of water spray will depend on water pressure. Fortunately such sprinklers can work even with low water pressure. Also consider the hole size for the type of spray you want. The stationary systems are cheaper than most types, but not well suited for large areas as the water is not sprayed far.

Revolving Sprinklers

The revolving types normally have spinning arms which can be two or three and the water will be sprayed from the tips of those arms. These sprinklers are not suited for heavy slopes or sandy soil as the water is thrown quite fast. The throwing radius is not high and as such these types are more suited for smaller garden areas.

Impulse Sprinkler Systems

The impulse sprinklers are excellent for large garden and lawn areas. With one jet near the ground, the water is evenly distributed over the whole area in a circular manner. The systems produce a strong spray and are thus well suited for windy areas. With controllable features such as height and radius adjustment these irrigation systems can be recommended for larger lawn areas.
