You should figure out why the area in question dries so soon. The reason might include any of the following:
- The grade of the lawn is higher in the dry area than in the others, so the water is draining away;
- The soil type is sandier in the dry area than in the others, so the water perks down sooner;
- The sprinkler heads in the dry area are not covering it properly;
- The sprinkler heads in the dry area are not delivering enough water;
- The sprinkler heads are spaced too far apart.
Changing nozzles is not difficult, but it may require some inexpensive, specialized tools. If you can't do it yourself, or you simply don't want to be bothered, find a competent lawn irrigation specialist.
If the problem is due to grade or soil type, know that the grade can be changed or the soil can be amended. If the sprinkler heads are spaced too far apart, you may need to have additional heads installed. A well-respected landscape specialist should be able to help you.
