    Alright Pro's,

    How would you pull this off without overspray? This is a system I'm doing in the next month to satisfy my cravings for glue fumes.

    POC is in the corner by the walkway and the landscape bed. I'm thinking two spray zones, and one drip. POC is a 1/2" copper stubout from inside the house, so no more than 5-8 gpm.

    Toro makes a 2x6 strip spray nozzle. Go nuts.

    Don't forget the anti-dote for glue fumes. Weather-Matic makes the 5503
    brass series, dialed down a tad & rear load on the narrow area should do it.
    I would stub-out for copper risers in the center as plants mature & put rear
    load risers against the back in the larger area. 5' centers rule.Drip bites.

    OK, Jon... I'll ask the obvious before even recommending a sprinkler. Just what the hell is going into the green zones on your plan? Planters, types of plants, turf, etc. It DOES make a big difference. :)
