Sprinkler head recommendation for a 7' wide strip


I have a seven feet wide strip of a side yard.

It is 7' wide, and 36' long.

One side of it is the house exterior wall, concrete block stucco.

The other side is a masonry wall fence, also stucco finished.

What is the best kind of sprinkler heads to use for this kind of lawn? I know there are heads made specifically for narrow strips, but from past experience they don't really cover a rectangular area it's more like an "irregular bow tie" if that makes sense.

I am trying to decide:

(1) Where I should position the heads, in the middle (3.5' off), on the house side, or on the fence wall side.

(2) What type of heads to use.

Now ideally, I would never even put grass in this area. However, the house was a recent purchase and came with city liens. Last owner had removed too much grass area, and the city stepped in and ordered him to comply with the new code which is 40% landscaped area. With the entire site being 6000SF, of which 2400 of it is the actual house. If I want to keep the driveway to be concrete, I have to turn all available remaining space to grass. Which leads to many unpractical, stupid grass areas.

For such a narrow area, probably have to go with spray heads on both sides.
You would have a semi circle pattern from the spray with the heads staggered so the semi circles overlap.
