8 GPM seems low unless you are on a very small water meter and an older house.
This is my case. My home was built in 1956 and it has a 5/8" x 3/4" water meter. I measured the flow at the nearest faucet to my house mainline, and it produced 8 GPM. I'm not sure if this will increase by tapping into the mainline directly since it has a larger size than the faucet? Best case it does, but I'm going to design for 8 GPM just in case.

I feel like with rotators, I'd like to see 4 on the yellow zone, two on the green zone, and 4 rows instead of 3 - this is pretty similar to the layout and dimensions of my back yard, and I definitely wish they had put more heads in.
Or, just 4 rows of 3, including 2 @ 360's that throw a shorter distance in the middle.
Is the below design what you are suggesting, SCGrassMan? Overall, the lawn gets a lot of sun. Shade covers the southern 5-10' of lawn in Winter and hardly any in Summer for the warmest hours of the day (10a - 5p). I laid out the zones running west to east, so I could control watering the southern (shadiest) area better as g-man earlier suggested.
