Editor's Notes

December 24, 2018:

When shopping for oscillating sprinklers, it’s important to find one that will fit the size of your yard and cover your lawn consistently. Be sure the model you choose adjusts to your desired flow pattern, pressure, and dimensions. Durability sets the top models apart, like the Melnor XT4200M and Gardena ZoomMaxx, both of which contain some metal components.
