Sprinkler system design

I am planning sprinkler system for my front lawn. The lawn is relatively square but separated by sidewalk and walkway.


I plan to run 3/4" PVC pipe from garden hose valve coming from the wall of my house. I ran the pipes underneath the sidewalk and walkway.


I plan to use water hose faucet timer to control the sprinkler system.


I checked the water flow from the valve and I filled 5 gal bucket in 20 seconds.


I have few questions.


Is this system appropriate?


How many sprinklers can I put on one line? Some line will be 45 feet long since I will need to install sprinklers from other side of sidewalk. Do I need to build a manifold near the valve?


What kind of sprinklers do I use?


How many drain valves do I need to install? Is one per each line sufficient?


How do I connect PVC manifold to the hose timer attached to the valve? I could not find any flexible hose that I can use.
