When you aerate a lawn do you have utilities come and mark their lines( gas, cable, etc.)?
If gas, cable, etc is that clse to the surface, then someone should be shot!!!
I think if you called 4 a markout, the operator would laugh at you!
I usually get the customer to flag any sprinkler heads that are in the lawn so we don't hit them.
here in MI, I think the stuff is buried below the frost line, 3 feet
What abou invisble dog fences?
In MN all utilities should be buried a min of 12" but sometimes the phone and cable are right beneath the sod. On lawns i know this to be the case I will call for markings as well as invisible fence.
Alway ask the home owners if they have sprinkler system or invisible dog fences. If they do tell them to flag it.
I know here in FL they only bury cable and phone lines about 3-6 inches deep. In my area anyway. I watched the cable company do mine. All he did was lifted up the sod and ran the cable under it. I would call just to be safe. It's free. Just to a web search. It's called "Call before you dig". They notify all the copmanies for you.
Here's there website. You should be able to get the number from there.
