It's so obvious, but it's still important to say because it's such an easy mistake to make 'cause you have to be really careful if I have a property line for example, here and I started to manipulate this swale as it was coming around, if instead of doing it exactly in that location where I did it, if I started to do it like that I've just excavated on somebody else's land and that's a really easy mistake to make because you're thinking about from the sort of big picture standpoint and you start to lose track of where the little end tailings of these decisions are. Clearly, I can't excavate somebody else's land. Same would be true where if I happened to have a tree here as soon as I start excavating below the drip line of the tree I've effectively killed that tree because I'm cutting into its roots.
