Utilities Damage Prevention

What to do if you have utilities on your job site.

  • When you arrive onsite pay attention to any markings done by utilities company.

    • Look for flags and paint and verify all utilities that are on your ticket have been marked.

    • Check at the house for locations where utilities enter house and verify they have been located and marked properly.

    • If you notice utilities have not been marked contact your designer asap and discuss what you can do to get utilities marked asap. Let your landscape manager know if you need to pull off jobsite or cannot get utilities marked. In some circumstances you will be able to proceed based on scope of work and home owners approval.

    • No digging/excavating should start unless you have verified utilities have been properly located and marked in your work areas.
