Can I use an overhead sprinkler to water my garden?

It is better not to use a sprinkler in the garden:

  • Much of the water is lost to evaporation and  is not absorbed by the plants.
  • Water on the leaves can lead to disease
  •  Fungal spores can splash up from the soil and can disease


Best to water close to the soil or use a drip irrigation system.
