One thing to consider. With the water restrictions we have here of two days a week watering with traditional overhead watering, there are NO restrictions for drip. So drip zones for trees/shrubs/etc, can water more than two days a week if needed. Even subsurface drip for turf is non-restricted.
Agreed! Sprays have no place in landscaped beds, with exception to ground cover and/or plants that stay below the riser pop height.

IMO, Netafim TLCV SDI grid or a heavily mulched surfaced laid grid. The effectiveness and efficiency of such a system is unmatched.
