Did you know that traveling lawn sprinklers are a great above ground option for watering large areas of lawn, field, or garden? They cover wide areas, save time, and are good for odd-shaped or hilly turfs.
Traveling sprinklers are self-propelled, operating on neither electricity nor gas. They are usually found in tractor or wind-up types. Tractor types throw water from two watering arms that rotate 360 degrees. With the wind-up type, someone would lay out a cord in a pattern that the unit follows, dragging a hose behind it.
Traveling sprinklers work very well, provided you have good water pressure. Except for initial set up, they operate independently. They generally have a couple speed settings, and there is also an option to keep the unit stationary.
These types of sprinklers are good for schools or businesses that have more than one field to water. They are also perfect for sports fields, golf courses, cemeteries, and parks.
Affectionately known as “The Lazy Man’s Sprinkler”, a traveling sprinkler is a great way to water larger or multiple areas, or areas that are oddly shaped. Just set it up, and watch it go!
