Garden sprinkler effect

Garden Sprinklers have an established place in gardens but the question of whether their primary purpose is irrigation is up for debate.. Children love playing in sprinkler water, and with as many different water effects as possible. Adults like watching the spray, believing the sprinkler is doing more good than laborious weeding.

A sprinkler needs sufficient weight that it does not flip over under pressure so beware light plastic models. Garden Sprinklers with a metal head tend to last longer.

Rotating ‘whirlybird’ type garden sprinklers are best for circular lawns and childrens’ play.

Oscillating garden sprinklers are more business-like and less fun. They water in a rectangular pattern. The oscillating sprinkler has different modes for different movement patterns – full swing, half swing for stationary. The mechanism for controlling the modes may be an external drive or an internal water turbine. The latter is more reliable as external drives are easily damaged when knocked about.

Impulse garden sprinklers have a rather commercial sound – and can soak the unwary gardener. The impulse sprinkler is the most powerful type of sprinkler so it is particularly important to make sure that your sprinkler is stable with a good heavy basis. The impulse sprinkler is a circular sprinkler.

Tractor garden sprinklers, also known as walking garden sprinklers, use water-power to move slowly and methodically over large lawns. The front wheel of the tractor sprinkler straddles the hose so the path of the sprinkler is guided by the position of the hose.

Electric timers can be used for watering in the gardener’s absence.

A variety of Garden Hoses

In some areas, an outdoor water hose is more than just a convenience; it’s a way of life. It keeps flowers healthy, kids happy, and vehicles show room sharp. Whether you want a green lawn or a clean car, a garden hose is an excellent tool to keep your property looking its best.

Types of Water Hoses

Some of us are all too familiar with the green plastic tangle that used to pass for an irrigation tool. Thankfully, today’s homeowner has a much better selection of garden hoses to meet their individual needs.

The first, most well known type of hose is the rubber (usually green) garden hose. Aside from the tangling issues, the biggest problem with these hoses is the wide range of both prices and quality. It is difficult to know if the rubber hose you purchase will be durable, flexible, or tough enough for the job you have in mind until you actually bring it home. Most water hose problems are caused by kinks, and a poor quality rubber model will get plenty of them. Those looking for a hose that will only be used once in a while, then put away promptly and carefully might be okay with whatever they purchase, but the constant gardener should, at the very least, opt for the heavy-duty model.

Flat garden hoses are becoming more and more popular and for good reason. They are easier to put away and store than conventional hoses, and still come in a wide variety of lengths. Firefighters have been using flat hoses for years because of these very reasons. They are more expensive than most round hoses, but are less likely to kink. Flat water hoses often come on a spool or real for convenience. Beware, though, that only some of these will operate properly while coiled; others will need to be mostly or completely uncoiled to work well.

A lesser known variety of water hose is the spring coil. Its truly ingenious design wraps a relatively long hose around a relatively short spring in a spiral fashion. As you walk with the nozzle, the spring and the hose uncoil. When you let go, they retract to a very manageable length. While using one of these might get a little tedious over a large area, they are perfect for small plots of land or patio and deck watering.

Garden Hose Care

The best way to maximize the life of your garden hose is to roll it up and put it away properly after every use. This reduces the amount of kinks and, in colder climates, will keep the hose from freezing (which can cause penetration of the lining and holes in the hose). It will also keep it from being repeatedly run over by vehicles (not a big problem for some hoses), or, even worse, lawnmowers (a big problem for most hoses).

Realistically, though, some situations require using a hose once or even multiple times a day. Rolling and unrolling that hose can, after a while, become a very unpalatable chore. If you are in that kind of situation, it’s best to just buy the highest quality, most durable hose possible. You should still put it away, however, whenever a freeze (or lawnmower) is expected.
