The Importance of Sprinklers

The Importance of Sprinklers

When it comes to the health of your plugs, ZoysiaPlug cannot stress enough the importance of proper watering.

The first 14 days are the most vital. While your plugs settle in they desperately need enough water to support their growing root systems. Over time you will need less water overall (around 1+ inches per week) but you'll still need a quality sprinkler for your lawn. 

Our team will always encourage you to use a sprinkler over hand watering. Hoses are not an effective method resulting in drought-like conditions that can kill your plugs. 

The goal of this blog post is to share a few of the best sprinklers available today. We want your plugs to be successful without creating high water bills or added stress. These options are simple and can be adjusted for use on narrow lawns and odd shaped yards. 

What makes a sprinkler great?
