In Southwest Florida, a sprinkler system is essential to maintaining a healthy, green lawn.

If your home doesn’t have a sprinkler system – or it’s time for a new one – you’re sure to have many questions, such as how many sprinklers you need to cover your entire lawn.

An effective irrigation system should water every area of your lawn, without overshooting, as this eliminates water waste.

In order for this to happen, you must install the proper number of sprinkler heads. Here are some basic steps you can take to get a better idea of how many sprinklers you need for your lawn:

  • Measure the dimensions of your lawn and draw it to scale on a piece of graph paper
  • Learn more about the diameter of the circular spray pattern for the sprinklers you want to use
  • Sketch the locations of the sprinklers on the graph paper, adding in the diameter of the circular spray pattern to ensure proper coverage
  • Count the total number of sprinklers you need to cover your lawn

Tip: when calculating how many sprinklers to install, pay attention to areas that are more likely to get sprayed by two or more sprinklers. This will call for you to use different types of sprinkler heads, as you don’t want to oversaturate any one area of your lawn.
