Topband: One acre arrays

I have approximately one acre free in the back yard and was considering a 
triangle array.  The area is 200' square.  At the closest points to the 
property line the back two verticals would only be ~1/16wl long, but 
most  of the radials would be approaching or exceeding 1/8wl as they fan 
out.  Would I be better off going with a 2el array with longer radials 
given an equal number of radials (say 60)?  What if the radials were 
doubled on the triangle array?    I have a Bobcat coming this weekend or 
next to drill a bunch of holes and would like to drill for the bases for an 
array at the same time if possible.

Hopefully, someone has modeled or tried this already.
