Well water sprinklers near beach kill flowers?
I want to plant a flower garden and toiled through exhaustion in last week's heat putting in a sprinkler system that uses well water. I thought I had made a nice home for my future flowers, and was quite proud of my new system (I am not a handy-man). I live 2 blocks from the beach on an Atlantic coast barrier island, and when I went to a nursery I was told my well water would kill any flowers I planted, especially when the sprinklers showered the leaves. Nursery #2 (where I went for a more favorable second opinion) , told me to use a drip hose for the roots for a month, and then turn the sprinklers on the leaves when the flowers have adapted to the well water. I really want to use sprinklers and not a drip system, as there are already 5 sprinklers on the same line over the lawn, and I was concerned about 2 differrent systems on one line. Any thoughts?
