    Use a valve locater. You can buy or rent one. The (Tempo) Progressive Electronics 521 is the one most commonly mentioned here. Really old systems won't always have the valves in a box.

    If for some reasion you can't rent a 521. Get yourself a long screwdriver, and be prepared to go over the lawn stabbing for the box.

    * once had to do that *
    ** Got lucky and wacked into the box I needed in less than 5 minutes **
