I don't think I've seen a sprinkler like this before! I love the layout of the garden too. What kind of tree is that? http://www.actionsprinklerservice.com/Service___Repair.html

The tree is a CA Pepper tree (Schinus molle). The sprinkler was bought at an arts and crafts show in Lake Forest, IL. I've lost track of the artist, but see a lot of similar ones on the market. Try a web search for spinning copper sprinkler --- there are lots of different versions out there.

Love the water feature! Could you tell me what it's called and where I might find one? - I'm making a whimsical children's garden in my backyard, and this would be such a fun addition. Thanks in advance for your reply.

This is a sprinkler. It is made to go on the end of a hose but we "hard-piped" it and put it on an automatic sprinkler valve. The kids run around in it too --- if you time it right, you can run around it and stay dry or you can run around it and get soaking wet. I used to buy these from an artist in Illinois --- but he's gone out of business. There are some knock-off's available --- look up "decorative copper sprinkler" in a search of the web and you'll see lots of options. Happy gardening!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Vegetables and Flowers Mix in Beautiful Edible Gardens
Strong structure for strong interest. This parterre-inspired veggie garden, with its strong architectural lines, is attractive year-round. Add the playful sprinkler — which looks like an armillary sphere when not in operation — and you have a vegetable garden that's fetching enough for center stage.
Laura Gaskill added this to Simple Pleasures: Beat the Heat With Water
Run through a sprinkler. The gentle “shh” of a sprinkler is an iconic summer sound — and few experiences better sum up simple summer pleasures than running through one in a bathing suit on a hot summer day. On the first really hot day of summer, embrace your inner kid and go for it. Follow it with an icy Popsicle eaten on the lawn.
Cool off. Give the air conditioning a break for the afternoon and try to cool off in a more passive way. If your climate permits, take a run through the sprinklers, jump in the pool or put your feet in a fountain. You’ll beat the heat while opening yourself up to the weather outside.
