    I have an area that is 26 feet long by 6 feet wide. What is the best way to cover this area. I thought about RB 15RCS or 15LCS or RB 15SST, but have never used the side strip sprays and not sure what kind of coverage I will get. This area also doesn't get that much sun.

    Im guessing concrete is there twice on purpose? Why fight moss forever?

    Well i think Concrete would be out of the question, maybe river rocks or something.

    Lets say I would use the RB Corner/Side/Center strip nozzles, how would you place them.

    None of the above......RB 1812's with Weather-Matic 5503 brass nozzles.
    On 5' centers, naturally.. both sides.:) MP strips are junk unless you throw 50+psi at them.
