Boundary Survey in Wisconsin

Land Tech just recently finished a boundary survey on a 152 acre farm in the Town of Hubbard, in Dodge County Wisconsin.

What is a Boundary Survey?
A boundary survey is a survey to establish the boundaries of a parcel using its legal description which typically involves the setting or restoration of monuments or markers at the corners or along the lines of the parcel, often in the form of iron rods, pipes, or concrete monuments in the ground, or nails set in concrete or asphalt.  In the past, wooden posts, blazes in trees, piled stone corners or other types of monuments have also been used.  A map or plat is then drafted from the field data to provide a representation of the parcel surveyed.

When selling land and you do not clearly know where the property line is on the ground.
When land is not clearly defined by a plat, legal description, or older Land Survey.
When you cannot be certain of the location of your property corners.
When building, Land Surveying often used to determine drainage, setbacks, and proper planning by many.
Before land is divided. When a lending institution requires a survey for a mortgage.
Before building a fence, building, shed, or anything close to an unknown property line.
Before timber is to be cut near a property line.
