I am just running a project out in my head before I actually go bid on the job. About how many valves are installed on 3,000 sqft. of turf?
Thanks for the replies, the more I read from this site the more I learn.

How many gallons per minute of flow do you have? How many gallons per minute does each sprikler head use? That will tell you how many heads per zone you can have.
How much area those heads will cover depends on your water pressure, nozzles, and what the heads are designed to cover.

If you don't know that much, you probably are not ready to do a sprinkler system.
