This is a personal preference, they both have their pros and cons. PVC is generally used in non freezing climates, whereas poly pipe is generally used in freezing climates. If you already have a lawn established, I would suggest poly pipe, it is a cleaner install which eliminates trenching (because the poly pipe is pulled into the ground) and generally lasts longer than PVC in my opinion.
