For overhead systems, the systems are designed with overlap, with multiple sprinklers providing water to the same patch of ground. For microsprinklers which don't overlap the assumption is often made that the wind will blow from multiple directions so that the cumulative effects are minimal. Irrigation is often done at night when the winds are low
