How I work
Hi! I'm Wendy, your friendly neighborhood metal detectorist. I can help:
- Find a lost key or a ring
- Find historic artifacts on any home property that's a century old or more
- Find family heirlooms and other childhood treasures from your own family homestead.
- Work with museums, church, and other landmarks to find historic artifacts
- Teach you how to metal detect.
- Bury objects for a kids' party and teach the kids!
- Assist police with forensic investigation
Will it damage my lawn?
No! I pride myself in not leaving any garbage or doing any damage to your lawn! Most items I find will be 6 inches deep, and I cut a U-shaped divot in the grass and lift that up. Once I remove the object, I replace the divot, tap it down, and the sod is completly good. If it's a really dry, hot day I actually bring water and I'll water it.
How does it work?
I pass my detector over your lawn in overlapping loops until I hear a sound. The detector sends picks up metal and can differentiate between gold, silver, and other metals. While there's no guarantee that what it indicates is what's really down there, I have the experience to make good judgments and find valuables and ancient items underground.
How much does it cost?
It's not expensive! Of course it depends how large your property is, but you can pay me and keep all the items I find, or pay me less and we'll split the profit from any valuables that I uncover.
How long does it take?
On most lawns, just a few hours. Obviously, it depends how large your property is.
Where can you metal detect?
I can find metal objects on any ground, including forests and beaches. I even have the equipment to detect in ponds (snorkel deep). Places where there has been recent construction are often good targets because they churn up the ground, and I love to work on historic homes. Of course, I only work in areas where the landowner has given permission, and I don't work on federally protected sites or places that deserve an archaeologist.
