I had 811 mark my utility lines. They were here today.They marked with both spraypaint and flags.

The markings are valid per their rules for 30 days. It will be about 2 weeks before I can get the landscaping work done. In the mean time is it OK to mow the spraypainted marks?

At least they didn't try spraypainting the snow like they did here not long ago...that didn't work out well. – Grant May 1 '14 at 2:34

NO! Do not disturb the markings enough to make them disappear. Mow around the markings.
