Spring is officially upon us! With it comes warmer temperatures and more DIYers ready to break ground on a wide variety of landscaping projects. With the month of April being declared National Safe Digging Month by many states throughout the nation, it is our hope that many of these DIYers will take the necessary step of calling 811 before they begin their digging projects. After all, a call to 811 reduces the chance of a damage to less than 1%.
According to the 2016 Annual DIRT Report, “call before you dig awareness remains consistent with historical findings at 45%.” To promote increased awareness, 811 and Home Depot have collaborated to put the Call Before You Dig message on all of their tree wraps nationwide! Georgia811 Corporate Communications Manager, Megan Estes, secured the national partnership with the world’s largest home improvement store in 2017 with a scheduled debut for the 2018 growing season. So next time you find yourself in Home Depot, make sure to visit the gardening department to snap a photo with our 811 tree wraps. Share your photo on social media with #811HomeDepot so we can all participate in this exciting new partnership.
