Fiber burial depth

We recently had AT&T fiber Internet installed and are thrilled with the service. However, a technician came by today to bury our line. I wasn't home during the process, but I checked out the work when I got home and the fiber was visible in several places. I checked the depth of the trench, and the burial depth seems to be no more than 2"-3" in most places. I have serious concerns about the fiber getting damaged or cut during routine yardwork.

Is there a set depth for installation? It certainly seems that 2" is not enough.
