Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Digging requires a lot more careful planning than most people realize. There are a number of things our machines could hit. Because we can’t see what is under the soil until after we’ve dug it up, it’s important to do as much research on the property as possible before grabbing the drills. This way we can do our best to prevent anything from happening, and be more equipped to handle anything that doesn’t exactly go according to plan.
The first step of any task is usually the hardest, but it’s also the most important if you want the rest of the process to go according to plan. Before we can dig and set the holes for you, we’ll need to know where the holes need to be. While we do offer this service, you may find the experience more rewarding if you’re the DIY type.
