Please, can I mix sprinklers heads at the same area ?!

Yes you can as long as it's with Rainbird Van 10 and 12 because they have similar flow rates.

It’s not advisable to mix different sprinkler heads in the same zone that have different range coverage with different flow rates. For example, rotors that usually through water 30 feet or more with sprays that have shorter spray patterns. It will create a huge imbalance in the zone.

If you run that zone long enough to have the rotors cover the rest yard, you drown the area covered by the spray. If you only run the zone enough for the spray to water correctly, the rest of the yard will burn up.
