Water source question

Hi Everyone :D ,

I am new here and am installing a sprinkler system. We have four water hydrants/pumps scattered around the lawn and two faucets coming from the house. I was thinking it would be a good idea to use the hydrant/pumps as the source for water instead of the facets connected to the house. The water pressure is better. What do you guys think? Is this a good idea?

Based purely on your notes, I'd go with the highest pressure.
But there is a lot more I'd like to know before I started a design.
What is the pressure?
Gallons per minutes?
Is everything off a pump?
How big is the pipe?
