Outdoor Wiring

If I wish to run a line outdoors please clarify what is typically required regarding:

1. UF Cable - Must it be buried? If not in conduit how deep? Can it be unburied if not in conduit? If in conduit what kind of conduit? (plastic/rigid metal, etc) Does the type of conduit effect its burial depth? Is this standard or vary depending on your municipality?

In conduit 18" deep.
If no conduit 24" deep.
If it comes above ground it should be protected by conduit where it enters and exits the ground.
PVC electrical conduit is fine.
