Lightbulb Sprinkler system repair

I just replaced a broken pop-up sprinkler head in a narrow piece of lawn. But I am stumped as to how to redirect the spray. The problem being, everytime I try to get closed to replaced sprinkler head I get soaked by the nearby ones. I don't know how to turn off just one or two heads in the same station without turning off the one I'm trying to adjust. I know this is silly question but I'm stumped!!!!

I previously experienced this problem and found that by placing an empty bucket upside down over the sprinklers surrounding the one in need of attention will allow you to perform without getting soaked.

lol. I've had the same problem. Never thought of using a bucket durrrrh.... that's smart.

Though I'd get a little wet...I just didn't turn the sprinklers on full blast. Just enough to see where the water was going.
