Adjustment to old system?

We have an old sprinkler system from the late 70's or early 80's in the house we just bought, and it works great. It's all copper piping and most of the sprinkler heads are on the perimeter of the lawn, with just a few in the middle. My wife wants a flower bed put in all along the roadside area and up the alongside the driveway to the front of the house, as well as a rail decorative fence. However, that of course would mess up the sprinkler system--so I would have to move the sprinkler heads. I've never worked with a sprinkler system before, and especially since it's all copper pipe, I wondered what exactly would be involved and how difficult would it be to move the sprinkler heads away from the perimeter of the yard?

Here's a picture from google. In the red is where she wants the flower bed.

Sprinkler heads thread onto pipes, so it is always possible to unthread a sprinkler head from its connection and add fittings and pipe to relocate the head.
