Where to position spray head?

I am designing and installing an irrigation system for a client and there is a 15 foot strip of grass between the side of their house and the property line/fence. It is about 25 feet long. They want all spray heads and the customer is always right. I am getting 17' radius Hunter PS Heads, and my question is, should I put the heads in the middle of the strip and have them set on a 360° spray, or up against the house with 180°, aimed toward the property line. I do not think there is a possibility of mold growing on the house with the 360° spray, as the side the strip is on faces east. What do you all think?

Not a good idea to put water on the house mold or not.

I would put the heads on the perimeter of the house spraying out towards the property and away from the house.

Ditto what Hi Todd said. Keep water off the house! Keep your spacing of the heads closer to 15' to avoid any gaps in coverage.

Exactly what Todd and Central have already said. Never spray towards a house. Head-to-head coverage spraying away from the house.
