Wet ground!!


Postby katanga » Thu Apr 03, 2008 5:36 pm

I'm doing a new fence for the garden and the ground is very boggy and wet. Whenever i dig any holes, within 24 hours they are 3/4 full of water! Any suggestion for a good concrete mix that will help this situation and how big should holes be dug for a 8' post for a 6' fence?

2 FEET DEEP AND TWICE THE WIDTH OF THE POST AT LEAST.

USE POSTFIX (DRY LAID).
