Resolved Question:

How deep do I have to bury a PVC pipe for a subfeeder in my back yard. No vehicle traffic in area. I will bury it with 2 inches of concrete if it will allow me to dig a more shallow trench.

Thanks for the clarification. If you bury it under 2" thick concrete, you can go 12", if you go 4" thick with the slab, you'd only have to go 4". Otherwise, without a concrete slab, you'd have to go 18".
