Customizable Save Time Save Water
Spray systems are best for small, flat surfaces and are commonly used on turf and shrubs or flowerbeds.
There are several different types of spray heads and they all have their special functions. They can be customized to spray a full circle, half circle, quarter circle, and so on and so forth. Traditional sprinkler systems use spray heads that deliver a fine, mist-like spray. Spray-type heads are specified for systems when accuracy of coverage is critical. Some stay at ground level, some pop up and some are on tall extended pipes. The disadvantage of spray heads is that they are often less efficient than rotor heads or drip systems, because they put water down on the ground faster than our soil can absorb it – leading to runoff and evaporation.

Rotor System throw water in a wide circle and the focus of the water is always moving; this gives the plants and flowers more time to absorb moisture more efficiently.
They also apply water at a much slower rate than spray heads. In the past, rotors weren’t used for smaller turf areas, but there are new rotors specifically designed to apply water at less than half-an-inch per hour, and with a radius of less than 15 feet. The application patterns and radius are adjustable, and can conform to odd-shaped areas. Although generally more efficient than spray heads, these systems can still lose quite a bit of water to evaporation and runoff. Rotor systems come in two main styles: stream or impact.

Flexible Design, Very "Green" Irrigation
There are many different types of drip equipment, including drippers, bubblers, soakers (inline emitters), and micro-sprayers.
Drip irrigation is the most water-efficient way to irrigate many different plantings. It is also ideal for clay soils because the water is applied slowly, allowing the soil to absorb the water and avoid runoff. Drip devices use a fraction of the water that overhead spray devices use. Drip tubing is laid throughout a planting bed and feeds water directly to the base of the plants at a rate the soil can absorb without losing water to misting, overspray, or runoff. If you decide to change your landscape it’s easy to add, reduce or change the location of the sprinklers or drippers.
