What You Need to Consider When Purchasing a Sprayer
Before you make the step to purchase a sprayer for your garden, you need to know how you’re going to be using your sprayer, and for what. If you only have a small problem area in your garden, then you aren’t going to be needing large sprayers. But if you have a large lawn or garden to contend with, you will need to opt for a bigger model with a larger capacity.
Before selecting a lawn and garden sprayer, you should decide how you’ll be using the device. In some cases, problem areas simply require a small amount of pesticide while large gardens and lawns will need more substance to ensure proper treatment.
Will You Need One or Two Sprayers?
This isn’t a ruse to get you to buy multiple products! It’s actually very important to keep your herbicides (weed killer) and your pesticides (pest control agents) separate. You need to prevent chemical overlap which can be dangerous. If you are only using pesticides, then you’ll only need one sprayer, but if you intend to dose your plants with herbicides at any point, then you’ll need to make sure you get a second sprayer for safety.
What Kind of Sprayer Should You Choose?
The sprayers that gardeners choose depend on the type of use. We stock a range of backpack sprayers and hand-held garden sprayers to suit most applications.
This is a very popular option for many gardeners – professionals and enthusiasts alike – as they are easy to use and portable. When using a compression sprayer, you merely add a concentrated solution of the required chemical to your water tank and dilute the solution to the required amount.
Our range of compression sprayers come with measurements to ensure
the correct calculation of formula, and also have adjustable spray nozzles for easy application.
These sprayers are slightly more heavy-duty than the compression sprayers in that they are portable and generally hold more solution than the hand-held sprayers. You can easily walk around your garden doing the necessary spraying with a backpack sprayer, and can administer the solution with a level pump which allows for consistent and even dosage.
When you choose the sprayer that suits your garden, you need to keep in your mind that you are going to be using a pressurised device. As such, you need to be aware that you have to be cautious and to use the necessary safety equipment.
When using a lawn or garden sprayer, you need to follow a few simple rules for operation so that you can continue to operate your sprayer safely.
Filling your sprayer
Remove the top of your sprayer and set it on the ground next to you in an easy to access place. You want to add your chemical strictly per the manufacturer's instructions. You can then add your water to dilute the chemicals, but be aware that you shouldn’t add water right up to the top of the sprayer – because it’s that space between the water and the top of the container that allows pressure to build.
Administering your spray
Once you have filled the spray tank of your garden sprayer, you can pump the handle until it becomes resistant. Then make sure your nozzle is in the correct spray setting by testing it on an area that doesn’t have any plants in the way.
While you are spraying, make sure you cover all areas thoroughly, including the undersides of your plants. You should dispose of all of the remaining spray when you have finished spraying and not keep it. It’s unsafe to do so. Then wash out your sprayer with water, including the wand, tank and spray lines.
When You Should Spray
It’s important to spray your garden regularly to ensure the best possible results – and the best times to spray are with the seasons.
You need to protect your wood-based plants before pests arrive and can prevent them from burrowing into trees and shrubs.
Protect your lawn from weeds by administering a herbicide when weeds grow, or when they first start to grow.
Take a look at your flowers and veggies in early summer. If you notice any pests, then you can spray something like white oil or other organic pest prevention and protect your plants. White oil is simple to make – it’s just one cup of dishwashing detergent and two cups of sunflower oil combined. You only need to use one tablespoon per litre of water for great results.
If you have roses, make sure you are administering a specific rose spray to stop things like aphids, black spot and mildew.
The hottest season heralds the arrival of pests like mozzies, so be sure that you are spraying for pests as well as keeping your garden fertilised and maintained. Spray your roses regularly as required, and protect any tender plants from excess heat with an appropriate drought shield.
Control caterpillars and lawn grubs, and any other kind of root-eating pests. Cut back your geraniums and spray them with a boosting spray.
