We used to use a sledgehammer to beat a steel pipe under the driveway/sidewalks, pull the steel pipe back out whilst following it back out with the PVC pipe. 2" pipe and smaller of course, unless there's not a lot of dense clay and rock.

For $200 in asphalt patch and a rented concrete saw $150, 2-3 hours in total labor, you could present an option that is 1/3 the price to the homeowner.
A patch will always look like a patch. Always

The only no-fault asphalt cuts were those at the end of a driveway adjacent to a concrete sidewalk (on account of early no-boring-missiles-invented-yet cable TV line burials)

So does anybody have real-world experience with the boring missiles, like the vermeer that sunbelt rents here:

Without completely reworking the plans which have already been half implemented, ie the irrigation lines have been trenched and have pipe in them on the right side of the diagram.

Why on earth would anyone install lines without the under-driveway access being established beforehand?

Mainly because its an in-family project. We wanted some irrigation to get some St Augustine plugs at least started in some areas.

Big job, 2.5 acre, >50,000 sq ft of lawn thats mostly weeds/bahia/bemuda

We're going to put down a lot of St Augustine plugs and let it run wild.

I'd cut the asphalt and use paver stones or stamped concrete to fill the cut as an accent.

If it's an in-family project, rent the boring missile and learn first-hand about it.
