Original Post:

So I started working on the new dog fence this weekend. Drilling holes with a 1-man auger is definitely easier than with clamshell posthole diggers, but it still sucks when the ground you're digging into is approximately the hardness of diamond. As my boss would say, it took all day and cost at least a hundred dollars. And since it was about a billion degrees outside (actually about 104), I went through almost a case of bottled water, all of which came out through my pores. Anyway, here is a yard full of holes, from two angles, with the existing fence in the background:

The holes next to the house required some "percussive maintenance", since the foundation extends a few inches out from the walls on all sides. That led to this cheeseball pic:

More coming as work progresses.
