the water supply for my lawn sprinklers is from a well and it seems to have a low pressure. My question is can I use normal sprinkler system products for the do it yourselfer at the home depot, or do I need specially labled low pressure products? My low pressure sprinkler head works alot better than one that is just regular.

Most home wells do not have sufficient pressure and/or recovery for running a sprinkler system. I would suggest you work with your local well drilling and maintenance professional to see if the existing well and equipment could be expected to handle that, and if so then work with an irrigation expert to design a satisfactory system.
