This sprinkler is great for areas which may be difficult because of shape. It can be adjusted to do a narrow area or a square area. and it comes with a stake to make it higher, and there is a hole to put a ground staple so it can't be moved by water pressure. I find it a very effective sprinkle.
This does everything I wanted it to, but the little ports clog easily from my well water. I haven't had too much success clearing them, even with a fine beading needle; whatever clogs them just rides back with the water flow. No directions on cleaning that I could find. Otherwise, I like it a lot.
We had a lot of rain this spring! And wouldn't you know it, it went from "too much" to 90+ degree and dry instantly mid-late May or thereabouts. Then I finally tried it, and was real pleased. It is my intention this year to get our act together! A dedicated sprinkler (still using a Rainbird that I loved but is off the market) and a dedicated "feeder hose" everywhere I water regularly. Which is a lot...It has a very specific usefullness. Only thing I haven't tested is to see if they last as long as my Rainbird "impulsillators". ;-) But since they aren't made of so-so plastic, I think they'll last longer. (one of the problems with the Rbird is reaching over tall plants that are close by - but the noodle can be adjusted for that.) I am disappointed that you don't have the extensions now, but I had my doubts about how well those would work. Attaching to a side of a post as suggested would probably work better anyhow.
I use this in my narrow raised flower bed. A regular sprinkler was wasting lots of water. This worked perfectly.
I liked it pretty well. The noodles are easy to bend, but I had little trouble keeping the stake at the desired angle.
