Mark, flag or map all shallow buried utilities BEFORE core aerating your lawn!
Updated: Oct 23, 2021
Here are a few of the most common underground “non-exposed” utilities that must be marked, flagged and/or mapped before core aerating your lawn.
Sprinkler heads that have been overgrown by grass
Shallow buried internet/tv cable lines
Shallow buried “invisible” pet fencing systems
Shallow buried electrical power lines (non-conduit encased in particular) feeding post lights, pond pumps, etc.
Shallow buried landscape drainage or downspout extension lines
Grass covered landscape drain outlets, grates, pop-up emitters, etc.
Lawn covered access covers for underground flood control systems
Shallow buried low voltage wiring (landscape lighting, holiday decorations, irrigation system sensors, etc.)
Please remember that if the machine operator is not aware of (or cannot see) the in-ground obstacle, it will likely be contacted/accidentally damaged at some point.
