You might want to be aware that there is a depth code for gas and power. In Vermont it is 18" minimum. I bet that is standard and why the "small" trencher goes exactly 18" deep.
Propane and power crosses the driveway... hose bib is a bit lower that that's why I want tap in to that. I am pretty sure they are eighteen inches down.. and after the grader almost tooke it all out I know exactly where it crosses the property.
I would do pvc on top of the ground but the sun killes it and I dont want to drive over it. The other option is to take it from the house but then I would have to go around the Septic and hope i dont dig into the leach field. Right now water is coming from the house via a hose for about a hundred feet or more.
I may still integrate the water pipe into the fence and just cover it with Black pipe. That way I could take the source either from the house or a hosebib in the yard....
While it does get cold, we only get three days of freeze here and maybe four or five days of snow... total.
