HI! I would like to put up a 12ft washing line pole in the corner of my back yard. I cannot dig a hole , since there is a possibility that our sewer pipe may lie beneath the area of the pole base. I would therefore like to put up a pole with a bolt down base, and secure it to the wall, to ensure safety (that it won't fall down!). I want a tall pole so that I can permanently fix the line to this pole and pull the clothes line up and down by a pulley placed on our house wall, in the opposite corner. The clothes line and clothes will therefore be high up to dry. We had a similar arrangement, with a scaffold pole, in my last house. Does anyone have any advice how I could do this please? Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Would a wood or metal pole be best? Thank you
