How are corner markers set, and how will I find them?

The most common marker is an iron bar with a plastic cap. In asphalt pavement, a nail is typically set. Corners that fall in concrete or stone are usually marked with a chiseled cross or drill hole. In some instances, typically when required in a new subdivision, concrete monuments are set. When the markers are set they are indicated either by a wooden stake with colored ribbon if in a dirt area, or by brightly colored paint for marks that fall on hard surfaces.
