Lawn Care Tip: Pulsating Sprinklers

by on January 18, 2012

Lawn care involves many steps, but perhaps none is as important as proper hydration. After all, a St. Louis lawn cannot grow without water. Adequately hydrating your St. Louis lawn is not an exact science, but it is close. The best plan is to install a sprinkler system that ensures your St. Louis lawn is watered every day at the same time. Sprinkler systems with a timer are even more ideal, but you still have several options there. Lawn care specialists highly recommend pulsating sprinklers for the best results.

Pulsating sprinkler systems spray water into the air and allow the water to fall back down to the ground in a fine mist. There are five different types of pulsating sprinklers: impulse, traveling, stationary, oscillating and rotary. Impulse sprinklers are the top choice of St. Louis lawn care professionals who need to water a larger area such as an entire St. Louis landscape or vast St. Louis lawn.

It is important to know if you have high or low water pressure, as that also factors in to which type of pulsating sprinkler you choose for your St. Louis lawn care needs. If you have low water pressure, an H-base is a better choice than a spike-based sprinkler which is better suited for high pressure.

Pulsating sprinklers have the benefit of being designed with gusty winds in mind, as well as low-hanging trees or tall shrubs. The height of the water spray can be adjusted accordingly and since the water is typically sprayed close to the ground, its spray is unaffected by the wind.

If you think a pulsating sprinkler may be beneficial to your St. Louis lawn, contact your local St. Louis lawn care company. Many St. Louis lawn care providers also install irrigation systems, especially since proper hydration makes their job that much easier!
