    I used 12' tall 4x6 posts set 4 down (38 frost line) space at 15 so a 16 2x6 could be the span. No movement at all.

    Hi Shug,


    I plan on using 10' 4 X 4 treated posts 13' apart 6' above ground 4' below. the one thing I am confused about, what is the best anchoring material, All the youtube videos seem to use quick set post cement, but this forum seems to suggest gravel. Which is better (more secure) and why. Please advise.
    I am installing these tomorrow, so I need some quick advice, concrete or gravel, and why.

    P.S. your videos got me interested in hammock camping. Thank you!

    Hi,

    I am about to set the posts and I really need to know why gravel is better than quick set post cement. Is gravel stronger than concrete? I have used the quick set post cement before, and notice I get some movement in the posts after a year or so. So I'm re- doing them, and I want them to be "rock solid this time .Also, what do you recommend for the overhead "beam".

    I am going to use the 13' distance, 10 ' 4 X 4s treated 4' sunk in the ground 6' above ground.
