Do you mean to fill a hole that big?

Not taking the time to compute the actual volume of a circle but using the math in your initial post 4x4x4, that would be 64 cubic feet and there is 27 cubic feet in a yard.

That is unsettled and loose so you should have plenty. Figure about 20% compaction by next spring; so mound it about it up a bit for now.

So I filled the hole and while waiting for settling had 3.5 inches of rain yesterday. Settled about 6 inches out of the 5' I filled. Just top off with soil or put some hard fill first?
