Tips For Positioning A Garden Micro Sprinkler System

As the weather starts to warm up, we thought we would share our tips for positioning a garden micro sprinkler system for maximum efficiency and coverage. Remember that all product codes listed on the diagram can be searched and added to your basket from the search bar at the top right of the page.

  • The distance between garden micro sprinkler system heads should be less than the radius of their throw. The sprinkler in the above diagram can comfortably throw 1.5 metres, so the next sprinkler should be no further than 1.5 metres away.
  • If your garden is wide and you need more than 1 row of sprinklers, the next parallel sprinkler run should be no further away than 1 ⅓ times the radius of the smallest adjacent sprinklers (e.g. 1.5mt radius x 1.333 = maximum 2 mt to next parallel sprinkler run).
  • Plants and trees can obstruct the sprinkler water, so closer is better if this will be happening.

At Designer Watering Systems we offer heaps of online resources to help residential DIYers to install systems themselves. Please be sure to take a look at our sprinkler system layout guide and if you need any detailed assistance we also offer a sprinkler layout design service to help you determine the optimum positions for your garden micro sprinkler system for maximum coverage.
