    Well not my first thought to put large rotor, valve in head, it would be cool, but not realistic. That much I know because nobody that I know of stocks parts, I don't have experience with valve in head and they cost 3 times for for the extra 25' of radius when I can just put in an I40 with opposing nozzles.

    yikes

    Does your company do the landscape/ hardscape too?

    Why plant 1300 plants with no irrigation to them?

    Yeah, well demo the existing and redo it, the job had been postponed at least til March. As far as the irrigation IDK, the guy I replaced did the design on it and has no formal design experience?
