Hi. One of my gate posts rotted out. After months of trying to remove the remaining post, I finally got it done with a "cherry picker" and a "come-a-long". Now, this is my problem. The previous owner of my home installed an 8 foot post into the ground for this 4' fence. To remove the remaining post I dug out 2 1/2 feet deep and about a foot in diameter around the post. Now that I have the post out, I was left with a huge crater!! How do I go about installing the new post where it will be solid. I'm afraid that filling the hole back with the dirt I remove and then digging a reasonable hole for the post is not going to work because of the loose dirt. I don't want to fill a 2 1/2 deep and 1 1/2 foot in diameter hole with concrete either. Please, some suggestions would be appreciated.
