A surveyor can come out to your home to identify the location of your property line. There’s only one property line that divides neighbors. If you have a surveyor come out, make sure to have them identify the line by marking the ground.
What is used to identify property lines?

Or, sometimes metal rebar, spanning the length of approximately 2 feet, can be discovered in the ground through the use of a metal detector. These metal detectors are necessary if your home is an existing structure. However, these detectors can be obsolete if the home is sitting on multiple acres because that would take forever to find!
