What to put on top of my fence post cement


I have 4x4 PT fence posts in the ground 3 feet. They have pea rock in the bottom 6 inches and then about 1.5 feet of cement with another 1.5 feet of open hole. What should I put in the rest of the post hole to bring that up to grade? I am in clay soil. Should I just pack clay around them? More pea rock? Crusher dust?

Do you want grass and/or weeds? Soil.
If you don't... some gravel would be a good idea.

I will be putting top soil and grass around the posts. I guess it's soil then
