    Any help appreciated. Customer wants me to quote him fixing a hole under his driveway. Hasn't seen any critter activity or anything yet.

    First, what's the best way to fix this? Just fill in with a particular material? Any special material recommended, or just pack in whatever will stick?
    Any idea what to charge?

    He may not have seen the critter, but I suspect there's a groundhog in that hole. If so, he's got a problem, because once the hole is filled with dirt, stone or concrete, another hole like it will show up in the near future.

    If theres a groundhog in there he cleaned up after himself very well. I think it's more likely that the base/subsoil was not compacted enough as the cement looks fairly recent. All it takes is a little water to move soil. Make yourself some flowable fill(discussed recently in the hardscaping), pour it in until it's full and don't look back.

    Also ,once you fill the hole, bring up the grade.
