Hi. Not sure if I've posted in the right place. I have just bought a metal obelisk - 7ft tall. My husband pushed it about 10 inches into the soil (as per instructions) but I'm not sure if it will stand up to the antics of the foxes and their cubs at that end of the garden.
I'm thinking about digging a hole 10" deep and putting some concrete (or that stuff you use for fence posts), setting the legs into the concrete and filling the hole back in with soil. The obelisk is 14" wide, how wide a hole would I need to make?
Has anyone done this - or is it a bad idea to have a slab of concrete in my flower bed. Any advice will be much appreciated.
