Before digging in your yard, you will want to make sure that you know where all underground pipes or lines are. Your local power, cable, and water companies will come out to your home and mark the lines for free. This is a very important step in preparation before leveling your yard.

In your yard there are underground water lines, sewer lines, power lines, cable TV lines, gas lines, and possibly fiber optic lines. All of these pipes or lines cost a lot of money to fix or repair. You do not want to get stuck having to pay the cost simply because you did not do your due diligence before you started grading or leveling.

The reason companies offered to do this for free is so you don’t have to have any of the lines repaired. It takes time and money to repair things. Make sure you call about a week ahead of time before you plan on leveling or grading your yard. Most of these lines or pipes are not very deep in the ground. Before you do any kind of digging or killing even for a garden, you should consult with your local power and water company.

You may also have a septic system or a will in your yard. You will need to get your surveyors map out to see where exactly the water line or the septic tank is. Septic tanks are generally not very deep in the ground. If you were to damage the top of the septic tank or crack it, you would have a big mess on your hands. Not only are they expensive to fix, but you do not want what is inside the septic tank to be in your yard.

It does not take long to do proper preparation before leveling or grading your yard. There are not many services that companies will do for free in today’s world. The fact that power and water companies offer this service for free is a great benefit and advantage to you and me. Make sure that you take full advantage of this and prevent any damaging to lines or pipes that come to your Toronto home.
