Coverage

Perhaps this is a dumb question , but; if you have a square area, and wish to have "head to head" coverage, you would typically place a head in each corner.
My question is this: if you only have a head in 3 of those corners, will the corner without a head still receive adequate coverage? There would still be 2 heads which would cover that area.

Reason for asking, is owner tends to turn into the driveway and "miss" on occasion, cutting through the area where a head would be located.

Thanks

The area without a head would be receiving the tail "trace" watering from three sprinklers. Your mileage may vary.

We throw into corners often. It works well.

You could put an ABS sleeve slightly above the head for protection.

In trouble areas, around roads and such, we have placed heads inside of half sections of concrete blocks. We just place the head an inch or so below the level of the of the block. In other words, the top of the block will be at the soil level, the head will be sitting at a level an inch lower. Of course, this does you no good whatsoever if this customer is driving over it when it's on

I have on occasion done it with an length of 4" sch 40 pipe in areas where a 6x6" one-inch deep divot with the concrete block would be too large.
