My dog digs a hole in my lawn. I try to refill with the dirt she dug up, it doesn't fill up. Why?
There is an old wives tale that says having enough to refill depends on which side of the moon the digging happens. However, the answer is a little more scientific. A dog's digging scatters the dirt to smithereens (whatever that is) and it is impossible to gather the same amount the animal happily, care-freely, blissfully, mindlessly distributed hither and yon.
You are probably right. Love the old wives tales. Still, I wish I could just fill the holes back up. Not going to happen is it.
I would stop by a Walmart (or Home Depot, or Lowes, or...) garden shop and pick up a cheap bag of dirt (not expensive potting soil). Bags are a manageable amount to handle both at the store and at home even if I needed two or three.
That was what my husband and I talked about doing. Walmart is pretty cheap and it's just dirt. Haha.
Then you'll have the dirt on the answer! Heeheehee.

Why do you never have enough dirt to fill a hole in?When you are digging a whole, why is it that you never have the same amount of dirt that came out, to put back in?
