    I have a job that the LA has designed an elaborate vegetable garden. It needs the ability to water over head or with drip depending on what is planted each year. The LA wanted something attractive for the over head watering. I made this up today picture it with brass impact head. what do you think.

    I was going to propose a risers in the corners and a header for drip connected to the same solenoid valve with a three way valve to switch back and fourth. And there would be about 5 zones of this.

    They are wanting the ability to put a coat of water on the leaves and fruit of the plant so that when it freezes, it protects the plant. So if the homeowner is not home to cover them, you use the irrigation to do it.
