Should Sprinklers Cover Flower Garden As Well As Lawn

Question From: C. Vaughan - Troy, Michigan, United States
Q: Read your article on watering today. I have expanded my flower garden but I hate to water, and am getting sprinklers installed for the first time in my life. Should the sprinklers cover the flower gardens as well as the lawn? I was planning on that but would you advise? Thank you!

A: Unless you plan on watering the gardens, I would include them. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
