Love Your Lawn | Ultimate Sprinkler Guide
Summer is here and the heat is on, but that doesn’t mean that sprinklers aren’t useful all year round. Water is absolutely critical when it comes to the health and more importantly, the survival of your plants and lawn. Maintaining your garden during the hottest months of the year can be demanding, but with the right tools, you can make watering your outside space a breeze! 

Water, water everywhere 

According to gardening experts, there are a few simple things to remember when it comes to watering. Targeted watering is important to ensure each garden area is getting the right amount of water consistently. As you may be aware, some plants may require more or less water than others. Your lawn may also vary in its watering needs. The next crucial thing to consider is the timing of your watering. With heat, comes evaporation, so it’s important to time you're watering to ensure your garden gets the most out of your efforts. Something as simple as a sprinkler can mean summer gardening is a little more hands-off, giving you more time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. 

So, which sprinkler? 

Choosing the right sprinkler for your garden can be tricky, but with Hoselink’s diverse range of sprinklers you can totally customise your watering experience. To help you decipher the options we’ve put together a handy watering guide to help you make the best irrigation decision for your outside space. Remember, it is important to consider the water pressure from your taps and the capacity of water it is able to handle when considering sprinklers. Choosing the right sprinkler can be budget friendly if you choose one that covers the right amount of surface area, rather than buying multiple that don’t reach all of your space. All of Hoselink’s sprinklers have been designed to blend in with your garden, are sturdy and are durable enough to endure tough Australian conditions, such as harmful UV rays. Hoselink Sprinklers also come with a one-year warranty, providing you with peace of mind when you shop.
