An oscillating sprinkler is suitable for simple garden irrigation. First attach a garden hose to the oscillating sprinkler using the Gardena-type click coupling connector. Then switch on the pump and/or open the tap, and the sprinkler will begin to water your garden. The oscillating sprinkler can usually be set to the distance it needs in order to 'fan' from left to right. This is ideal if you want to spray your garden occasionally, and do not want to install an irrigation system.
