How to choose a Solo garden sprayer for home use

You know your garden needs some love – patchy grass, pest-ridden veggie plots, and flower beds strangled by weeds. Choosing a garden sprayer is an important part of caring for your lawn or garden. If you’ve already Googled, you’ll know garden sprayers come in all shapes and sizes and picking the right sprayer for your needs isn’t always easy. So, what do you need to consider to make the best garden sprayer decision for you?


It all comes down to what you want to use the sprayer for. For example, if you need to spot spray weeds in your garden or small lawn, a handheld sprayer with an adjustable sprayer nozzle might be the right choice. If you need to spray evenly over a large area, then a backpack sprayer may be the best choice for you. Chemical usage will also play into which type of sprayer will work (make sure you read the product descriptions for this information!). Solo offers garden sprayers that range in capacity from 1L to 20L, with different carrying options.

Size and accessibility

What size of area will you be spraying? Are spray jobs in proximity or will you be moving from one end of the yard to the other? Will you be spraying anything that sits up high – plants, vines, windows etc.? If there’s a longer distance between what you're spraying, you may want a trolley or backpack sprayer for easier mobility. If you’re reaching up high, we recommend grabbing an extendable wand as well.


Think about your own ability. What weight are you able to carry with your hands, shoulders, or on your back? Do you have arthritis or a similar ailment in your hands? These will all factor into the best choice garden sprayer for you, dictating whether a hand-held or backpack sprayer, manual or powered is best for you.

By taking all these factors into consideration, you’ll be well on your way to choosing the best garden sprayer for your needs. We’re always happy to help, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
