Question: What kinds of sprinkler heads are best for my lawn and shrub beds?
Answer: All you ask of any sprinkler system is that it deliver its water uniformly over the entire area being irrigated. You can accomplish that with large-area turf heads, and you can also do it with spray heads placed closer together. Of course, you’ll have to leave the station running longer if the heads are covering larger areas. Work with a licensed irrigation contractor, preferably one you already know, or one that has done good work for friends or neighbors.
