Sprinkler head cleareance from exterior walls

Anybody have any good articles on sprinkler installations.
I am trying to find distance sprinkler heads should be away from foundation. I would think water back splashing against exterior wall covering would not be good.

Report as such…you can tell them a licensed lawn sprinkler contractor from Arizona told you that they should be 6 inches away…:wink:

If you are in Termite/expansive soil/stucco territory, I would want sprinklers at least a foot from the home (if it was mine).

No sprinklers should hit stucco at all.


Try this link and in the search box use “sprinkler”. You will come up with a good number of informative articles.



Knowledge is power! But sharing knowledge brings peace!!

Here we go with that “what is wrong with stucco” thing again.


thanks everyone , good links.
