I just removed a below-ground spa and the accompanying wood deck in my
backyard. This has left me with an approximately 5' round 1' deep hole
where the spa used to live, as well as a dozen or so holes from the
deck's 4x4 posts which were set in concrete. I would like to level
this area and lay some St. Augustine to match the rest of my backyard.
What is the proper filler material?
I'm worried about settling, and ending up with low spots. Since it
looks like a yard will do the job, I'd rather just get whatever works
best (i.e., saving a *little*
money on filler by using cheaper
material is not attractive if it will result in more work or leveling
down the road).
I hope I've given enough information, and I would appreciate any
suggestions out there. By the way, location is Houston, TX, if that
