Guys, i updated my mock up of the yard a bit. You can now see the problem area that is in front of the rock garden that may be hard to get to with a rotor, but i still want to use rotors in my design for the front lawn. Feel free to give me advice on this. I need help fast. The rented trencher will be here tomorrow! Also, will head to head coverage still be a possibility?

Edit: Sorry, here's the file. Might be best to do a 'Save As' on it.

In somewhat of dilemna. Zones may interact

What I mean to say is that my lawn zone may actually interact with my shrub/plant zone in that I will have rotors on the lawn zone and sprayers on the shrub zone. However, i have a rock garden in the front, left with about 13 ft. of grass that is in front of it and 15 ft. of grass behind it that i need to get watered as part of my lawn zone. Here's the dilemna: I keep reading I will need head to head coverage to avoid brown spots, someone here said that i should put the two rotors on the front and back of the rock garden spraying outwards. Nice suggestion, only that I would have to be spraying no more than 15 ft. to cover the grass in those areas (to avoid water waste and overspray). However, on the other part of the grass, there would be rotors facing each other that are at least 30' apart (my throw would have been set at 15'), which would not allow complete head to head coverage (less overlap). I have eight (8), 3500 rainbird series rotors available. Can someone help alleviate my problem as quick as possible please. I have a trencher coming saturday and need to have a plan down to work with. Quick help appreciated!
