we decided to to build one yagi, vertical polarized,
> at ground level, and with the half elements buried.   
No need to bury half an element. A good ground screen will make for a 
virtual element for each element.  There was an article a few years ago 
about a Brazilian vertical with half of the element in a well.  Worked well 
(pardon the pun), but looking at the pictures, in the wet season the antenna 
was in a swamp so had a very good ground. 

Good luck
