Irrigation sprinklers - Information
A sprinkler irrigation system is an effective way of transporting water to your garden or lawn especially when drought is an issue in your area and plants require a lot of water to resist.
The system works using a hose or a pipe. Through this pressured pipe, the water reaches sprinklers and they irrigate the area in a way similar to rain.
There are some factors that need to be taken into consideration when planning the layout of the irrigation system. The size of the area that requires irrigation, the impediments that may be in the way and the shape of the land, all will affect the power of the sprinklers. Take your time and plan the most efficient layout possible.
You can choose from several sprinkler types. It can either be a center pivot consisting of a pipe with several sprinkler heads or it can be a system made of a series of driving towers that are connected to water pipes and move around the area. The last type of system is the most costly of all.
