Long Island Sprinklers & Irrigation

Sprinklers and irrigation are tools used to keep lawns, farms and gardens watered regularly. Sprinklers work by spraying water in the air to reach targeted areas. Sprinklers are placed in fixed locations where watering is needed frequently. Sprinklers may be used as needed or placed on a timer to water the area on a regular schedule. Irrigation systems are typically used in commercial farming settings, although smaller scale irrigation systems are available for use in gardens and other non-farming settings. Drip irrigation systems are a great example of an irrigation system that may be used by a home gardener. Irrigation systems are typically larger watering systems than sprinklers. They are frequently mobile so that the owner can position the system as needed.
