Put Your Sprinkler Heads In The Perfect Spots To Keep Your Lawn Green All Season Long 

Put Your Sprinkler Heads In The Perfect Spots To Keep Your Lawn Green All Season Long 

Sharing is caring!

I remember the first time I set up a sprinkler in my yard – I had no clue where to put it (give me a break, it was my first time!). 

I thought, “How hard can it be?” Well, after a few soggy patches and some very dry spots, I quickly realized that placement is everything. 

If you’re like me and want your lawn to look its best, figuring out the ideal spot for your sprinkler head is crucial. 

I’ll go over some tips and tricks to help you find the perfect location, so you can avoid the rookie mistakes I made and make sure that every inch of your yard gets the hydration and refreshment it needs. 

Keep Your Sprinklers Free And Clear

First things first, you’ve got to evenly distribute sprinklers in your lawn. Then, you have to ensure nothing stands in their way once they’re in action.

I thought that the trees in my yard wouldn’t affect my new watering devices, but when I saw those dry patches, I figured that they’d been blocking the water spray the entire time! 

So, don’t be a fool like me, and keep an eye out for these obstacles to ensure every corner of your lawn gets the hydration it deserves!

A little rearranging can go a long way:

Shift your outdoor setup

Relocate that fire pit

Change the sprinkler positions 

I would suggest placing sprinklers on each side of larger objects to eliminate any blind spots and guarantee full coverage for your lawn.

Think About Your Lawn’s Shape

Like many, I was surprised to find out that my lawn’s shape could affect how green it is. I thought I had it all figured out, but turns out, nature had different plans.

If your lawn isn’t as green as you want, even with your sprinklers spaced out nicely and no big things in the way, it might be because of how your lawn is shaped. 

Good watering is important, but if the water doesn’t spread evenly, it can cause trouble. So, adjusting how you water to match your lawn’s shape ensures every bit gets the water it needs to be lush and green.

How do you do this? Well, it all comes down to putting up your sprinklers on higher ground. Water likes to flow down, so it covers more space this way. 

Be careful not to put them at the bottom of hills, or you’ll end up with soggy spots! 

My yard is bumpy like a rollercoaster, so I always have to watch where the water goes. Ugh!
But with these smart moves and a few touch ups every now and then, my lawn is now the best in the neighborhood. If you want to learn more tricks, please check this article: If You Want Your Lawn Lush And Green, Follow These 7 Spring Care Steps
