How to install a sprinkler irrigation system
You don’t need a complicated and costly sprinkler system in order to properly irrigate your shrubs. All you need is a hose, a hose timer and a sprinkler. The hose and timer need to be connected to an outdoor water source.
Start off by connecting the right batteries to the hose timer. Most timers require AA batteries. Next, attach the garden hose to the sprinkler. The sprinkler comes in different designs. Choose the type that suits your needs best. Connect the other end of the hose to the hose timer and then attach the hose timer to the outdoor water source.
You now must adjust the system timer so that it waters the shrubs on a regular basis. For example, using the instructions on the producer’s manual, you can set the timer to turn on the water once every two hours. Place the sprinkler next to the shrubs and turn the water on in order to see if the system works properly. If the water pressure moves the sprinkler, try weighing it down with a brick or purchase a heavier sprinkler. You can also use built in spikes to secure the sprinkler into place.
