Any lawn sprinkler experts?


I'm looking to install my own sprinkler system and I laid out a plot of my yard and house in Visio. Just curious if anyone knowledgeable about sprinkler systems can take a look and let me know what they think. I attached a larger image but the forum software shrunk it.

I prefer 90's in the corners. The bottom area area might could be served with a couple of strip zone heads. Could you give us the dimensions? Overall looks like a fairly good plan. I presume the heads have matched precip rates?

Lot size is 75ft by 100ft. I haven't picked out heads, just trying to get an overall idea of where they'd need to go. I was thinking of going with something made by Hunter. They seem to get the best reviews.

Yeah the bottom... not really sure what to do with it. It is 12ft from the house to the property line.

I'm guesstimating I'll need about 6 zones. I still have to test my water pressure and flow rate.
