Planting trees and shrubs, setting fence or mailbox posts, and more requires breaking ground. And, any time you dig on your property you could be at risk of damaging buried utility lines, which might result in expensive repairs and even injury.
So be sure to call your state’s One Call System at 811 before you dig to find out where underground electric, gas, water, sewer, telephone, fiber optics, Internet, and cable lines are located – and have them marked. It’s an important step that can keep you safe.
