Rain Eroding Soil From Foundation--Please Help
 
Hi:

I have a one level stucco/concrete block home in FL. All of my gutters have those little extensions so that the rain will not drain close to the house. Well, appparently my lawn guy dislodged one, so the rain had been draining right near the corner of the house. It has eroded a bunch of dirt to the point that I can see a small hole underneath the home.

I was planning to go to Home Depot/Lowe's and pick up some dirt to try and fill in the spot.

Questions...
1) Is that enough? Should I pour some concrete down there or something?

2) What kind of dirt should I buy?

Thanks In Advance

Welcome Karla:
I would fill the hole with rock because it will not wash out if the problem ever occours again. A bag of landscaping rock should be enough.
