Center strip question

I am finishing my sprinkler design and have a question. I have a 8'x36' side yard. I am not sure if I should just use regular 7' (I should get ~8ft at 35PSI) sprayers or a combination of center and end strip sprayers. Thanks in advance for the help!

I think you want to include end strip sprayers in combination with center strip sprayers so that you can get that "head-to-head" coverage. The idea behind "head-to-head" is that you get each spot on the yard to be watered by two heads (to make up for the fact that the spray will not throw evenly). If you only use center strip heads, that means the ends of the strip are getting hit by only one head.

Too wide for strip nozzles.

I'd use quarter and half nozzles.

I agree with Tom the center strips are designed for a Maximum of 4' if that. Iw ould use halfs along the sides and quarters at the ends. If it is 8' wide id use 8' or 10' nozzles.
