DIY Shade Fabric Awning Support Advice

I'm trying to make anawningto provide shade in the summer. I want to use multiple rectangular shade sails to cover the area (approx 8x26'). I will be attaching it to the fascia of the house and the other end to 4x4s. We have a raised foundation so in order to put it relatively level it is approx 9.5 high. I'm wondering if I can get away with putting the 4x4s in a large ceramic planters filled with concrete? If I have to bury them how far down do I need them to support it?

This article bolts it to a deck.

You should visit a hardware store and ask them. You could also write to Family Handyman, the magazine the above article was in.
