    Gentlemen, what do you typically do in these situations?

    1. You have a long strip of yard to irrigate which abuts against neighbors yard, say 10' wide x 60' long (length not really the point here). Do you put in enough to get full head to head coverage, IOW sprays down both sides of the 10' dimension, or do you just put them down one side?

    2. Same situation, only abuts along the street?

    I ask because I see a lot of installations, where it's just down one side, which seems kinda "hacky" to me, but ..... it saves a bunch of heads ($$)

    Just wondering what's done & why.

    And, as always, many thanks

    Heads both sides. 10' spacing. You know the answer. Yes there are hacks that do it. Unfortunately.

    give them your business card and a bid to fix it.

    Netafim in both situations. No overspray. Impeccable coverage.

    I concur with Dana, heads on both sides, alternating, the goal should be even coverage along the strip.

    Not to get off topic:nono:, but I am hesitant to put Netafim in turf. Flowerbeds- everyday all day long, turf- ??????

    It is not only being done IT IS DEMANDED in TX parkways.

    Hopefully this practice will remain in TX. I'm fortunate enough to lay 200' of pipe and touch the Atlantic. No foreseeable water problems, but that can change.
