Unlike underground utilities, there is nothing that can be done to locate underground sprinkler lines aside from physically digging for them. As a result sprinkler lines will be damaged on occassion. The good news is that, once damaged, the lines are usually very easy to fix with parts from your local hardware store. If you have an idea where the sprinkler lines run, inform your fence contractor and ask them to take precautions when digging. We do offer sprinkler line insurance to mitigate the risks of sprinkler system damage. More information and pricing for sprinkler line insurance will be found on your free estimate.
If possible, the best strategy to prevent sprinkler line damage is to install the sprinkler system after the fence is constructed. Learn more about which order to do your landscaping in.
