Decorative Garden Sprinklers
Garden Sprinklers can be Fun and Functional
On a vacation in Wisconsin, my husband and I ran across some beautiful copper garden sprinklers. They were made in all types of shapes and sizes so we pulled off the rode and stopped to take a look. These sprinklers were very artistic and I'm sure they were worth the $200 plus dollars that they cost, but it was a bit more than we were willing to spend. Still, as we returned home we kept looking for those types of garden sprinklers. We thought perhaps we could find one that was not quite so pricey.
The next year, I was shopping at our local hardware store and came across some copper looking water sprinklers. When I saw the low price I knew they couldn't really be copper, but they were quite attractive and came in three different styles. I love butterflies so the butterfly style made it's way home to our backyard garden.
I've found these beautiful and functional sprinklers can be bought online. Perhaps one of them will make their way into your garden too!

Decorative - butterfly design
I love this beautiful butterfly garden sprinkler. We have had it for two years and it works great. I put it in the center of my backyard garden and it sprays out water for up to 30 feet. The two rings spin in opposite directions, which spreads the water all around the garden.
When I am not sprinkling the garden, the pretty copper plated butterfly design makes a lovely decoration in our garden. I love tools that are both decorative and functional.
This sprinkler comes in three designs: butterfly, dragonfly and hummingbird.

Fun in Garden Sprinkler - playing in the water
When my granddaughters came for a visit they loved playing in the garden sprinkler. Here they are posing for the camera with water sprinkling down their faces. Playing in water is a favorite pastime of the girls on a hot summer day.
Just for Fun
These garden sprinklers serve a dual purpose. They sprinkle the lawn with a bit water but also give hours of fun for the little ones who love to play out in the sprinklers. I know all four of my granddaughters would playing in these sprinklers. I always love something that has a dual purpose.

Practical Works Too
Decorative and fun sprinklers are great when you can use them, but sometimes you just need something practical. Here are two practical selections to fit your watering needs. The first is an oscillating style that will cover 2400 square feet and the second is a stationary circular sprinkler. It might work really great to sit in the middle of your garden on those hot, dry days in mid summer.

This stationary sprinkler head is good to put in the center of a garden.
