If they buried a new line it will also settle over time. Usually they don’t put a lot of effort into backfilling the hole after running the new pipe. You can fix it up nice now, and once it get rained on for a while and settles you will see the area they trenched. It goes a long way in advising the customer on what they can expect and settling is a normal thing. Then they know it’s not your fault and can expect to “fix” the settles area again later.
Yes this is good advice. Depending how deep the line is, it might settle quite a bit. When I had to fix this same thing in my yard in late summer, everything didn’t look “back to normal” until the second round of seeding and leveling the following spring.
