Best sprinklers for easement area between sidewalk and street

My sprinklers (Orbit Brass popups) are constantly spraying into the street. Although the easement strip of grass gets watered, their is so much waste. Can someone recommend a different sprinkler that might do a better job?

Do you have the heads with the adjustable pattern ?

Possibly the pressure in that zone needs to be reduced so the heads don't spray as far. This sometimes requires additional heads for full coverage.

Just look for a emitter that provides the spray pattern you need. Many emitters can be interchanged from one brand to another so if you don't find an Orbit one that will work you can also check RainBird. Emitters are available in round, pie shape, rectangle, square and all sorts of patterns.

I know that Rainbird fixed pattern sprayers are adjustable but not sure if the cheaper Orbit brand has that, should be a small set screw right on the top of the spray nozzle, just dial it down.
