best garden sprinkler?

I built a (little bit raised on a hill side) 10' x 20' garden. I had tapped into the nearby sprinkler zone and added a control valve in the garden so as to moderate the flow (and shut on/off). The zone its on has 4 sprinkler heads and I tested and should have decent pressure to water the garden too as long as I don't open the control valve too much and that will be determined later by the garden set up. (That grass zone gets overlap from the other side as well so I am not concerned as I can always increase the timer for that zone). I will plant tomatoes, peppers and some beans.... mostly along the back side. The remaining plants are lower in height like spinach and herbs.

I am trying to figure out the best way to water (via the zone). I was thinking since the taller plants will be along the more outer edges I can use some sort of raised sprayer.

So I need something taller, and maybe something that I can change the nozzle pattern and also regulate.
I'll also connect a poly pipe from my contorl valve maybe along the middle of the garden and use a few sprayers.

Any advice?
