I've got some that I keep just the bare minimum around the head cleaned out so the they can rise and retract without a problem.

I've got a couple new properties that I haven't even seen where the heads are, will be running systems in the next week to find all heads.

I don't like the looks of the donuts though several customers have them.
Look into Sprinkler head Cutters that attach in place of the Weed Eater string cutter Head. Yes this requires having an extra weed eater. One week you run the edger and the next you cut sprinklers head. Paying attention to details is what make you a success. Learning not to scalp with a weed eater is like one huge step in the process of giving professional work. Diagonal Cut patterns that vary from week to week show a real care for your work.
