“Fall weather can be unpredictable making it even more important you plan ahead so you have everything in order to start your projects when the timing is right,” said Kevin Chmura, director of public relations for JULIE, Inc. “One of the ways you can prepare is by contacting JULIE before you pick up the shovel at least two business days—and up to 14 calendar days—prior to any scheduled outdoor projects that require digging, regardless of the depth. It’s a free service.”
