A post hole is more than just a hole in the earth. It is a shaft cut straight down into the ground to a particular size in a particular place, despite all the root and rock obstacles between your shovel point and the bottom. It is also a heck of a lot of work, so you want to do it right the first time.
For a deck, fence or pergola, post holes need to be right or something goes seriously wrong with the carpentry layout, and/or inspection. If they’re not the right shape and correct depth, they won’t work.
It’s best to think about post holes as shafts. They descend straight (plumb) down from where you start digging them. The sides of the shaft are straight and the bottom of the hole is flat (or at least flat-ish). In other words, if your hole looks like a cup or a bowl, well, it’s not a post-hole.
