properly installing posts
I'm including pergola installation as part of my patio project. Post will be a 6"x6". I found this article which claims that cement is not as good as crushed angular gravel.
I'm thinking of going with the method(crushed angular gravel rather than cement) described in this article. I will be digging 42" of dirt as we are required by the village.
Is it true that using this method, the posts will still be very stable?
