I have a veggie garden. It's fresh this year with new soil/manure mix, etc. I also have an in-ground sprinkler system at my property.
Nearby the garden are some small pop-ups that spray a fine shower of water about 8-10 feet. It's not a mist by any means - but at the same time, it's not like a hose. Perhaps like a steady, light rain.
These were put in by the previous owner presumably to water bushes. But I yanked the bushes and now have the garden.
I've heard that spraying a garden with water is bad. It tosses stuff up onto leaves, etc. and can cause issues. I've heard some people water only by hand. Others use a drip system or soaker so water never hits the leaves/soil.
Would any of you advise against me just using these small pop-up sprayers to water?
I don't really want to do it - but I've separately heard you can mulch a garden specifically to stop the splatter.
