I can jump a Raised Sprinkler head or landscape light. But no way can I get a 3 ft high Bird Bath at 50 Ft. I have a too many senior movements and sometime try and rewind hose wrapped around a tree.
But I do something not many people do. I spray with a 42 Inch long wand and 2 GPM flat fan tip. When I come to a cement driveway etc I pinch my hose with my left hand to reduce pressure and volume while spraying with my right hand. That way I get no over spray. BTW My tank mix for turf is rather staining because of Minor elements.
