watering your lawn is an important part of lawn care but you have limited
time to do it. Other than hiring someone to do it for you, you can set up a
portable sprinkler to do the job for you.
A portable sprinkler is particularly useful if you have a small lawn since
it can be chore to move it around by hand for a large lawn. If you live in
an area with reasonable amount of rainfall, the portable sprinkler can be

see how it performs. In particular you want to know how much water it is
using to cover your lawn. First, place the portable sprinkler at the center
of your lawn and turn it on for about ten seconds. You want to know exactly
how much area it can cover. After ten seconds, turn the portable sprinkler
off and place about seven or eight empty cups in the area covered by the
portable sprinkler. Turn on the portable sprinkler again and leave it
running for ten minutes.
minutes, turn off the portable sprinkler and check the amount of water for
each cup. The amount in each cup will vary, as portable sprinklers tend to
have uneven water distribution. However, the variation should not be more
than 0.25 inch. You will use the cup that has the least amount of water for
your estimation. Lets assume that there is 0.2 inch of water in the cup with
the least amount of water. If you want to apply 0.5 inch of water, you will
have to leave the portable sprinkler running for 25 minutes.
