The post holes as well as being 2 foot, or 600mm deep, need to be 300 mm x 300mm so you have 6 holes measuring 600mm x 300mm x 300mm or 0.6 x 0.3 x 0.3 m. Put this lot into our calculator in the material volumes project on the website and it will tyell you how much of everything you need, including water.
