If you do a spell for example a binding spell, that's supposed to be buried upon completion and it's impossible to bury it what should you do? Currently the ground where I live is frozen solid and will probably remain so for the next few weeks. Will not burying the spell effect the outcome?

I always thought that the act of burying a binding spell was to prevent it being disturbed. Many require the binding of objects often with twine or thread sometimes wax and in the breaking the thread or such will cause the spell to break.
I would think that the outcome would be the same if you were to put it in a box (not too big) and keep it somewhere safe until such a time as you can put it somewhere well out of the way of curious hands.
i do beleive that urying leaves it undisturbed but rather than just burying everytime... You could dispose of it the way your element would drown it in flowing water, burn it, or shred it and scatter it into a big gust, and of course burying it... ive done it all ways but im a fire element so that way suits me the best... if you were to burn it please take the proper precautions... blessings

Burying a spell is for hiding it or disposing of the energy. In the case of binding, it is hiding it. So truly, you can "bury" it in your dresser sock drawer, or in a box in your closet. Only in the case of disposing or separation of harmful energy is burying a necessity.
I agree with WhiteRaven. Hiding the spell away in a back cupboard afterwards is good, just keep it away from anything important and wrap it in some dark coloured fabric. I can think of one binding jar spell in particular I left in a cupboard for a period of time. The target was this incredibly toxic person. It worked very well but unfortunately left a nasty looking black mark on the wall, where this horrible black fungus/mushroom grew behind the jar. I live in a very tropical area, so you get a lot of humidity here. However, it was just fairly unpleasant and I've never been able to get the mark off the wall since.
I'm a self-practitioner, so my reasons for burying differ.
However, if a practitioner needs closure,
but there is frozen ground, it can be a sign that Earth element is not ready to receive it. I will try to bury at the hours of 9 am, noon, and 6. Ideally noon when the Sun is high. I bury the spell at a crossroads and offer it to the Wind to let go.
