If you are on sandy or loose soil you can use plastic PVC conduit buried 18" deep.
Which you choose depends on the type of soil, how long the run, and your electrician's willingness to dig a trench. He will also know if any local rules override the general conditions above.
Who knew I stalling a post with electricity for Vanchicklet would be so complicated! Thank you so much for this valuable info! The property is on a river (that floods) and is full of rocks and large old tree roots. And I will definitely insist on on
ff at box and on the post. Thank You!!!
