Sprinklers are attachments that fit on the end of hoses and diffuse the water flow into small streams. This helps deliver the water in a gentler fashion and more evenly over a wider area than the flow from the end of the hose. The down side may be that the finer spray will lose some of the water to evaporation and not to the roots of the plants.

Note: We have provided some general information and observations on this topic aimed at the home gardener. Before you take any serious action in your landscape, check with your state's land grant university's Cooperative Extension Service for the most current, appropriate, localized recommendations.
