Buried mine for about 120' to outbuilding (a little more than a shed - a shed doesn't usually have a slate roof) 27 years ago all by myself using a flat shovel to make a slit about 10" deep. After cable was pressed into bottom of slit, I closed the slit by packing it with my feet. 'Course, the soil here is loamy and rock-free; the route also tree root-free.
