Raising sprinkler heads for new flower bed


I created a flower bed all along the backyard fence - added soil/compost and mulch. Only afterwards I realized that the sprinkler heads would be too short to clear the new height.

How do I go about raising the pop out part so it would clear the new height?

Thank you much

If you no longer need the pop-up feature you can just replace your pop-ups with longer riser pipes and put the sprinkler emitter on the top. That cuts down on leakage and maintenance of the pop-up. If you want to raise your existing pop-ups simply unscrew them and install riser pipe underneath. Most are 1/2" NPT.

If you want your sprinkler heads to be flush with the ground, at rest........you can buy new ones that have a higher head when watering, and go down to ground level when off.
