Its important to regularly tend and water your lawn in order for it to grow healthily. How often you water your lawn will vary depending on where your gardens located and the type of grass you have.
Lawn sprinklers provide an efficient way of watering your garden and can save more time and water than using a hose. They provide consistent coverage and can ensure water is absorbed through the topsoil and down to the root of the grass.
There are thousands of lawn sprinklers to choose from, each with a range of spray patterns and settings. Browse sprinklers from leading brands including Kingfisher, Hunter, Rain Bird, GARDENA, Raindrip, Hozelock, Gilmour, Orbit and Melnor.

Typical ranges measure anywhere from 15 square metres to 336 square metres.
