I will be running new pipe with water supply and i ahve enough force of water since i will be tapping in from same line as my existing sprinklers.

Spray heads. Either the Hunter Pro Spray series or the Rain Bird 1800 series. Your spacing will vary depending upon your available pressure and the nozzles used. Generally, you can get 10' 12' or 15' nozzles as the most common types. You want to have head to head coverage, meaning each head sprays to the next and so on..

6 rotors total- rotors at each corner and one each halfway along the 40' side. If you used sprays you'd need 15 to do it right.

1 vote for Hunter PGJ rotor here. You're looking at about 15 spray heads versus six PGJ rotors to do the same job. 3 rows of sprays heads versus 2 rows of rotors. And depending upon what kind of pressure and GPM you've got, perhaps 2 circuits instead of 3, or hopefully 1 circuit instead of 2. If you can get 15 lawn sprays on 1 circuit, you're in great shape.

(thinks briefly about recalling those square-pattern sprayheads that could easily cover a 20x20 area, before he notices the black van of the You're-Not-Using-Enough-Material hit squad lurking around the corner) [xx(]
