Presuming a 4” nominal post, the footer would be 12” by 12” and 42” long. At these dimensions, you will need 3.5 cubic feet of concrete. Each 50-pound bag of QUIRKETE® Fast-Setting Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.375 cubic feet, so you will need 10 50-pound bags. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.
