    Treated hardwood. Copper logs and pallets are usually a good cheap/free source. Depth for supports depends on the soil, if using concrete and how high/how much weight it has to support. I'd dig a foot deep as a minimum and ideally concrete too. For rocky areas I've drilled the rock and dyna-bolted C channel and brackets to rock for features with great success. Some rock is super hard though but the average granite should drill ok with a decent battery hammer drill. Chemset epoxy glue also works well for threaded rod or reinforcement rods.
