How to Fill BIG Hole Against Basement?


I have about a 10' x 10' x 8' deep hole right against my basement. There is a doorway to the basement. The sides of the basement and the sides of the hole are cinder block.

I am planning to block up the doorway and fill in the hole. Are there any steps I need to take to waterproof that area? What meaterial should I use to fill the hole? Do I need to put in drains or anything?

Take the door out, fill the door hole with cinder block or poured concrete. Then install something like the Delta Foundation Membrane over the cement and then backfill

What should I fill the hole with? Dirt? Sand? Gravel? Concrete?

Ayuh,... Any of the above, but concrete would be expensive, 'n severe overkill...
