Proper tools for removing surrounding grass?

Is there a tool that is made to cleanly and conveniently take out the grass/soil surrounding the sprinkler heads without having to use a spade shovel and take out a whole heap of grass/dirt when I need to get the sprinkler head out? I am tired of having to rip up my lawn for sprinkler head repairs. Perhaps a tool similar to a golf green cup digger? Please help!

I used old knife to cut the sod. Then I pulled sod away, dig out head, adjust/repair.
