This question is tricky. There are a variety of reasons why an area might be wet or boggy.

Since you said it WAS boggy, it sounds like it might be surface water. Meaning the area was being over watered. Is it an area that gets a lot of shade? I get the call every year. People don't reprogram their timers from season to season. Where the summer heat would evaporate the water now the fall/winter weather wont allow it and they get bogs.

Was the water shut off to the system for the winter or has it been under pressure the whole time?

Sprinkler Leak and lawn bog/flood

Part of my lawn was a bit flooded last fall and boggy. I do not know how to figure out whether or not I have a broken sprinkler head or line. Heads seem to be ok when 'on'. There is no obvious out of control sprinkler head. Other than digging up the lawn looking for whatever pattern of piping may have been used in configuring the system, are there other tests I should consider first?
