Thanks for the project update.

If the coax had no insulation on the outside, and the ground wire was also bare, I can understand why one would want to avoid running them together. Even at that, it would be a fine technical point at best. Insulated coax next to bare or insulated ground wire that terminates at the electrical service ground rod or equivalent connection point gives me no 'heartburn' at all. I'd leave it as is.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
