First step: find a good place for it. Hint: dowsing does not work.
Second step: mark it.
Third step: empty out everything that’s not a hole.
We should have a nice little hole at this point. As this hole is deep enough to reach groundwater level and beyond we can make a lot more out of it, for example: a well.
A nice little how-to, a bit more useful than this will be put in my next post.
