Nick Squires' Surculus sprinkler is an ingenious concept meant to make it easier to maintain the healthy and lush appearance of a lawn. The Surculus is a sprinkler system that runs off of lithium ion batteries. The system is standalone and does not need to be connected to the home's water system to function.
The Surculus sprinkler is simple and easy to use. Simply fill the system with water and set the timer. The Surculus' spikes keep it firmly planted in the ground ensuring that all you ever have to do is refill it with water every now and then. Gardening is one of the great joys of owning a home, but it can also be complicated at times. Designs like the Surculus sprinkler would help encourage people to take up gardening by making it easier and less time consuming.
