Motion activated in-ground sprinkler zone


In the process of designing an in-ground residential sprinkler system and would like to create a zone at the back edge of the property that is activated based on a motion sensor monitoring the back edge. I know that Hunter has a sensor based controller, but there aren't any motion sensors, just rain, sun, flow, etc. Thoughts on controllers that have this type of option or anyone engineer their own bridge to a controller using alarm type motion sensors?

Yes, thanks I see that now - lots of companies offering the same 'above ground' hose attached sprinkler. Maybe my original post wasn't specific enough, I'm designing an in-ground sprinkler system and looking to create a zone that is activated by a motion sensor.
