OK, I'll just say what I was thinking, and hinting around at.

I guess they didn't realize that black wire that led straight into the ground went somewhere... Plus they weren't too happy to get a $200 bill from the telco to splice their service.
You would think a "landscaper" would be smart enough to realize to look and scratch around in the dirt, but... you just never can assume! haha...
It takes all kinds.
