Sprinkler Head Location?

I am planning my raised bed gardens but have a big problem. My irrigation water is turned off for the winter, so I am not able to turn the sprinklers on to gain knowledge of their placement. I don't want to place the beds over the sprinkler heads. I will be planting in March and April, but the water will not be turned on until the end of April. Does anyone have any idea how I can find them so I don't make a costly mistake?

Run the system on air.

I tried to turn them on this weekend, but they did not pop up. I probably did it wrong. How would I run it on air?

When a sprinkler system is winterized, it is run from a compressed air supply instead of water. The sprinklers pop up and air flows from the nozzles. As long as the ground isn't frozen, any underground sprinkler plumbing will pass the air without issues.
