Finished Marking the Boundary

I was starting to wonder if I’d finish marking the boundary line of Dove Ranch with t-posts before the snows hit. It really worried me, because it costs so much for a survey. I didn’t want to have to survey the land again when the boundary stakes all fell down and got lost in the brush.

Boundary Survey

I’m working on a fence, but haven’t known exactly where the property boundary is, so I’ve been looking into getting a boundary survey done. I figured a survey of my 80 acres would be as expensive as the property was. That has scared me away from getting the survey done. However, I really needed a survey if I am going to put up a fence along the property line.

I ended up finding Boundary Consultants. I liked their website, and they sounded like they had a lot of experience, so I asked for a quote. David Hawkes quoted me $2500 for the survey and said he could have it done within a week. He included the boundary survey and line stakes every 100 feet, so I would know where I could put my fence.

That quote happened to be exactly what I had saved up, so I went ahead and had them do it.  I needed the peace of mind a survey brings.
