Some sprinklers work, others no pressure when on!!!

I have a system that is on one valve and it operates a small planter and my front yard. The small planter has a ton of pressure, but the yard has virtually none. They were on separate systems, same problem. Planter line fine. Separate yard line little to no pressure.

I combined the lines thinking it was the valve. As stated above, planter sprinklers fine, yard sprinklers no pressure.

I can't find any break in the lines and the heads are not clogged.

Any ideas on what it could be?

Did the line used to work then just suddenly stopped?
Maybe someone capped it off.
You could hook the garden hose up to the last sprinkler on the line and see if it floods somewhere. That's where the cap might be.
The line might be clogged but try the hose trick to see if they work or if it floods. Even if they work someone might have capped off both sides of the break.
