You could make a timer circuit using a 555 IC and by adjusting the resistance of one of the capacitors and the size of one of the capacitors you could change the delay. This timer could then be used to control a sprinkler valve's solenoid.
Or possibly a transistor and with the correct value resistor and capacitor you could make a circuit that would act like a timer. Haven't tried that though.
