Mixing Drip Hose and sprinkler heads on one zone

I Have someone istalling a system for my home. Its a 4 zone system with only a few sprinkler heads per zone to keep the pressure up. MY home provides about 50-60 PSI of water.

On the side of my home (10 feet by 50 feet) we have a few small heads spraying water. Can we end the zone by transitioning to a drip hose ? Will it cause the pressure to drop any more than a spray head ? The drip hose would abe about 15 ft long running through a flower garden. If I can not use the drip hoe, we will be forced to have a raised head just for the garden and this head will water a lot more than the garden.

So.. can we mix the spray heads and drip hose ?

help !

Use sprays for everything. They make small and special pattern nozzles.

Yep, two totally different flow rates. You should keep rotors, sprays, and drip irrigation all on seperate zones.
