Telephone poles corners work well db. No brace ne3ded at 4 ft depth

I use lots of telephone poles (and cross ties). Most at least 4' deep. I have different soils depending where you are, but I have never been able to get by without a brace post anywhere here..especially in the sand down by the river. Not that I haven't tried on some short runs, but sooner rather than later, the single post always start to lean.

You don’t have the bentonite at 3ft? How deep does your sand go.

ya, I haven’t tried it for terribly long so I’ll defer to your experience.
