Autumn is a great time to start some projects on your property. Weather is nice and you can consider installing a new mailbox, a fence, planting a tree, doing some landscaping or installing a deck. Any project that requires you putting the shovel into the ground must be preceded by a phone call to 811. 811 can be dialed from any location in the country, to make sure your autumn projects go safely and smoothly. Don`t just assume that digging a small hole is not dangerous. There are so many underground utilities and some of them are really close to the surface, so use your phone and have those utilities marked on your property, so you can safely take advantage of the autumn days and accomplish your projects. Ignoring to call 811 is not just a very bad idea – it is also against the law, considering that damaging underground utilities may have severe consequences to you and your entire neighborhood. When you dial, there will be an operator taking your call and notifying your local underground cable locator utility company, which will send a specialist to do the necessary marking on your property. Once this is done, you can roll up your sleeves and start working on your autumn projects.
