Hi, I'm currently digging out the hole for my pier to go into for concreting & I'm wondering how deep I need to go. The hole is 2 foot x 2 foot in width & was originally planning having it 4 foot deep. The problem is, as I get deeper it's getting more & more difficult so I was wondering if 4 foot is a bit overkill & could i get away with just 3 feet? I'm putting in steel reinforcing bars to steady it & 3 feet is pretty deep (Its more than half my height!) so I'm thinking that should be sufficient but if anyone could let me know if that's enough or not, my back & I would be very grateful! Cheers, Jeff
