For estimate depend on location and which kind of fence do you like??

For the hole for digging about 1 and half feet down is enough.

Here's a free estimate, if you dig your holes down 1.5 feet, I estimate the fence to last about 2 years. We dig our post holes to 48 . This is the required depth in order to get below the frost line. Frost will wreak havoc on piers and cause them to shift and heave.

Your posts have to be at least 4 to 5 feet deep to ensure you are bellow frost

Yes. Post holes should be 4' deep in most parts of Canada (all of Ontario) a 10' post will also get you a 6' fence without the need for cutting off the top of the post.

We go a minimum of 4' in depth. If you are in sandy soil we go down to 4'6".

The diameter of the drill will be determined by the size of the posts being used.

Good day, yes I build lots of fences.

In my quotes I break down material and labor.

Most of the time we go 4.5ft deep unless told otherwise by the home owner.
