Post holes


I want to build a fence along the side of my asphalt driveway to block off my backyard. I want to dig 2 holes 42" deep and have 2 posts set. I live in Toronto, Canada. Does any one know of post hole diggers who would give me reasonable prices? I saw one guy from the contractor forum had 6 holes dug, poured and set for $280.

Thank you.

Post holes

There are guys that dig holes using an Auger attachement on a larger peice of machinery.

There are also augers (for post holes) that can be rented. Most large rental stores carry them.
I suggest that you also consider the possibility of renting a unit and doing it yourself. The savings will be alot.
