Different Types Of Lawn Sprayers
Each lawn-care job is unique. First, you need to narrow down exactly what type of sprayer is right for you. Here are some of the main considerations between a handheld sprayer, backpack sprayer and trailer sprayer:
- Hand sprayers are the most affordable option, but also offer the lowest capacities. These come in a traditional design, like this Zep 32-oz. Bottle; some can connect to your hose for easy-spray abilities like the Ortho Dial ‘N Spray; others are designed to be more ergonomic, like the Chapin 48-oz. Hand Sprayer.
- Backpack sprayers provide more capacity and are easier to haul larger quantities of spray around. Chapin’s Harvest King Sprayer, for instance, carries four gallons so you can cover larger areas without having to refill as often.
- Trailer sprayers are much too big to carry by hand or on your back, and must be towed behind a utility vehicle. These reach into the several-dozen-gallon range, like this Fimco 45-gallon Boomless Sprayer, great for a large yard or farm.
What size sprayer do I need for my yard?
The general rule of thumb is to use two gallons of spray for every 1,500 sq. ft. of yard area. You’ll also want to consider your level of strength, as hauling around a few gallons of liquid for several hours can get tiring.
