A Review of the Best Sprinklers for Large Lawns
Lets face it: lawn sprinkler systems are much more effective as opposed to using even the best garden hose. When you’ve been watering your lawn all year round, I think it’s impossible for you not to feel tired (and bored) especially if you frequently miss doing more fun and relaxing activities because of this repetitive watering task
There are benefits you can get out of installing a lawn sprinkler. One of these includes the opportunity to conserve water. Another advantage is that you can have your lawn watered at night to deliver cooler water. If you are worrying about watering your trees and flowers, you can be assured that lawn sprinklers can reach them too. All you have to do is adjust their watering method or coverage.
Lawn sprinklers are also fun for your entire family. During weekends, you can play with your kids and adjust the water patterns. Some sprinklers provide selectable patterns which are really amazing to look at.
Without further ado, let me show you 5 of the best sprinklers for large lawns. To know which sprinkler suits the needs of your area, consider the size of your garden and the versatility of the sprinkler.
Rain Bird 25PJDAC Brass Impact Sprinkler
One of the Very Best Impact Lawn Sprinklers in the Market
Don’t be deceived by the looks of this sprinkler. The Rain Bird 25PJDAC may look plain but it surely has a lot of power. This best-selling sprinkler can cover a wide radius from 20 to 41 feet. Simply adjust its deflector flap for your preferred distance. Unlike other impact sprinklers, this one is a combination of brass, stainless steel and bronze for lifelong performance.
Even and Precise Watering
This Rain Bird sprinkler provides very nice patterns. It has a diffusing screw that breaks water into tiny droplets so you’ll see very fine sprays to ensure that even the hardest areas get adequate water.
Use its spray arm to prevent water from splashing into nearby properties and walkways. When adjusting this sprinkler, make sure you don’t get wet (because some users say they do). This one is very easy to adjust though.
