    When possible I go around the back of the house. When not possible I drill it with a 255.

    Long way around is by far the easiest way to get there.

    Thats my problem, the layout of the property prevents me from even taking the long way around (due to rock).

    Well, in ancient days, one could take a cutoff saw with a masonry blade, and make a cut across a driveway, and use cold patch afterwards, but that is major-league tacky nowadays. Making a single cut where driveway meets sidewalk looks less horrible, if you are confident of not disturbing cable TV wires.

    Heck, you might even be able to sell a hardscape upgrade by cutting out all the control joints and replacing them with brick. :laugh:
     
  9. bore the driveway....we use a rotowitch on a Ditchwitch 2310.
    If you bore it, go under an expansion joint...

    Nice point about the expansion joint. The OP's system is going under/through/around a blacktop driveway. In a perfect world, the driveway would be crumbling, and due for replacement, making contractor damages a non-issue.
