I am building a wooden swing set, and am planning to sink the supports 600mm into the ground, i have been given 2 pieces of advice for foundations, first a wet concrete mix 6 parts gravel to 1 cement, and secondly a dry sand and cement mix. Which of these is best? Any suggestions greatful.

Many Thanks..
