    When embarking on any project that requires any sort of excavation or digging, make sure you check and see where utility lines are located, including pipes, drains, etc. Most utility companies will locate these lines for you at no charge.

    1-800-242-1776. Got that one memorized from calling once a week. After hitting an electrical line and a gas line, I can tell you the minutes on the phone are worth it.
