    :confused: Just wondering how all you experts would design a sprinkler system for the area between the street and sidewalk? Area's are aprox. 5'-5" wide x 50'- 60' long, can be as short as 15'. Do you put in a bunch of small sprays? "strip" heads (4' x 30')
    or a combination. Do you recommend using the larger spray area heads & shooting over the sidewalk? Or do you always just seek to water the exact area with as little over spray as possible?

    9 SST's triangulated work quite well.

    Hunter strip sprays cover a wider strip - 5x30, and they have left-corner and right-corner 5x15 strip nozzles, too.

    Here we cover these "parking strips" with sidestrips, usually triangulated. Although it's permissible in some areas of the country to water over sidewalks it's not allowed here.
