On March 21st I had the childcare kids outside to play and noticed a hole in my yard.
I took a picture of it because I wanted to send the photo to the neighbors as the hole was on the property line.
Well one week and a snowstorm later, the hole has gotten bigger. Notice that a second hole has started. This happened when Hubby was out bringing the garbage can in. He saw the neighbor and told him to come over and see the hole. Hubby stepped in the spot where the small is and sunk.
I snapped a couple picture for different angles and zoomed out so you can get a better idea of the hole size. See?
They aren’t little holes.
Hubby called the local guy who deals with this kind of stuff and he came over. The thought is that this might be a spot where an old cistern was. There used to be house on the property and there could have been a cistern on the north side of the house. Being the second hole formed they ruled out the likelihood that it is an old septic tank.
We did talk to the neighbors and have agreed that it’s our problem to deal with especially now that the holes have gotten bigger towards our house. UGH.
The guy who does this work will be coming in a couple weeks once the ground is fit. He’ll be digging it out and figuring out the problem…then we’ll be filling it up again. More lawn seeding will be happening this year. I was so hoping we could go a year without it.
I’ll keep you updated on the ever changing hole.
