So you've made your choice on which hammock stand to buy and you don't know how far to plant the support poles. As a general rule bury them at least 1.5 feet deep. I would suggest going at least two feet deep just to be safe. If this is going to be a permanent location you may want to put a layer of concrete down for added security. Your manufacturer should have some written guidelines for you to follow that may vary slightly from these directions.
