View Full Version : Sprinker System Alternative?

Hi All,

Since I don't have a sprinker system, I was wondering what is the next best thing? I'm seeing all kinds of gadgets to water your lawns, but I don't have a clue which is better?

My backyard : 71.50 feet wide, and Length 58.00 feet
My front yard: 71.50 feet wide, and length is 31.50 feet.
My sides: 8.5 feet wide by 52.00 feet.
My house is sitting on a 1 third acre lot.

I saw a commerical sprinker heads on a tripod, connected to a garden hose at a hotel last week, and it was covering a very large area. I thought it was pretty cool, but again, not sure if thats the way to go to water my lawn.

Any suggestions?

i installed my own system years ago because here in fla. watering 15,000 sq ft would be too time consuming. i did see a a piece on this old house where they only had to water a few time a year and they installed some sprinklers in the ground that had a garden hose fitting. check their web site for old archives
