If the ground is bad we try it first with a wrecking bar. We had to remove of break up some really big flints at one place we did. Although we mainly do fencing for ourselves now, we have done it in the past for other people, and always like to get our posts upright.

a well designed shaped charge would by a quick and easy way to make post holes in most land.

bit noisy and there might some some paperwork to fill in but better than poking holes in chalk and flints or dryish clay with big pebbles with a bar.

Explosives show a lack of finesse Dpack. Tends to upset the neighbours too.

I guess it depends on your neighbours if that's a good or bad thing.

By the time you have notified all concerned about blasting holes in the ground, you would have time to dig the holes out using a toothpick before the authorities give approval or not.
I wouldn't tell 2 of my neighbours if I applied and got approval, then do the job in the middle of the night!
