How do you handle the turns?

I just have a new curb and driveway done. As you can see on the picture the corner is rounded now.
I was going to install rotary head in it but I am worrying that the area just next to the sprinkler on right and left will be dry because it is rounded, not 90 degrees corner.
How would you handle this?

If you have head-to-head coverage, basically another head up each side spraying into that corner, then you're probably fine. If there are no other heads hitting into that area, not much you can do without some redesigning.

Be creative. Install a spray head in the radius point of that corner

You'll need a head in that corner no matter what. But don't expect it to water much directly in that area. You need heads spraying into that area from up along each side.

"in the radius" means the center point of a circular curve.

Stick a short throw MP rotator in that radius so you can just tie it in with the rotor zone and keep the precipitation rates similar.
