Grapes in Western Michigan are planted a year after their grape arbor site has been laid out an prepared. One the rows are developed post holes are dug as deep as they can go. Five feet is the preferred depth. The soil, usually sandy locations, has limestone mixed in and poured back into the hole. The post holes furnish the grape vines easy access routes to subterranean water. The limestone mixed in prior to planting furnishes the roots with a couple/three lifetime supplies of this sweetener. Wish I could tell you more, but it has been 50yrs or more since watching my folks planting and raising grapes. I believe their arbors were four foot high with two wires. About time they quit farming they were talking three wires `T’ing the top two.
