I contacted the tower manufacturer and was told that I could use a square
hole that was 5 by 5 by 5 or a circular hole that was 4 by 6. The square
hole is 125 cubic feet and the round one is 75 cubic feet. The square hole
requires 4.6 yards of concrete and the round one requires 2.75 yards. I dug
the round hole--let's hope they knew what they were doing...
