Drip systems, supplemented by hand watering certain plants or times, for gardens are far more effective and environmentally friendly than spray systems. Every drop of water sprayed onto plant leaves can act as a little magnifying glass to focus the sun and burn spots onto the leaves. I don't think drip systems work on lawns very well. But spray watering large lawns is hugely wasteful of water.

Timer and controller for the win.

Timer works nicely until the electric goes out for a while or the rain sensitivity stops working and the timer comes on to run the system while raining. :)
