Landscaping Tip: Pulsating Sprinklers

by on December 20, 2011

Superior Dallas landscaping involves many steps, but perhaps none is as important as proper hydration. After all, a Dallas landscape cannot succeed without water. Adequately hydrating your Dallas landscape is not an exact science, but it is close. The best plan is to install a sprinkler system that ensures your Dallas landscape is watered every day at the same time. Sprinkler systems with a timer are even more ideal, but you still have several options there. Landscaping 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 Dallas landscaping professionals because they cover larger areas.

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 Dallas landscaping 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 Dallas lawn, contact your local Dallas landscaping company. Many Dallas landscaping companies also install irrigation systems, especially since proper hydration makes their job that much easier!
