No Electricity to Backyard - Please help!

Hello all, I'm new to this forum. Looks like a very informative website.

Here is my situation. We are putting in a covered deck in my back yard. The digging for the posts is essentially completed. However, the electricity to my backyard suddenly stopped working. I have a pair of exterior outlets beside my patio door that stopped working, and the power to my irrigation system is non-existent.

My contractor said there were no wires where they are digging. Assuming that is accurate, what else can it be?

Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you!

Have you looked for a tripped GFCI yet? Have you turned the breaker all the way off then on?

If there isnt a tripped GFCI,tThe contractor is likely at fault. He will blow smoke up your rear end though...
