While #1 is easier, I suspect that #3 will work better, because it gets the 
antenna up in the clear, away from other conductors that absorb power (like 
the wiring in your home, trees, etc.). When installing radials, I would study 
Rudy Severns' recent work on the topic. Google for N6LF to find his website.
