Calling your states locating service

Be sure to arrange for utility location at least a few days before you start digging. Call 811 to arrange for the service; this number serves the entire U.S. (Visit for more details.) After you call 811, your local One Call Center will contact all the utility providers serving your property and arrange for them to come out and flag everything. You'll have to mark the area first so they know where to look for utilities; the 811 operators will explain how to do this when you make the call. Within a couple of days after calling 811, all your utilities should be identified, and you then can dig with confidence. One Call service is free — and required by law.

Gardening is also a great way to provide healthy food for you and your loved ones. When you buy produce from the store, it just isnt the same as presenting a salad to your family that came exclusively from your garden worked by your own two hands.
