Look in the local newspaper for someone doing "dirt work" they will do it
for you. Also, the chance are 99% that the hole will be larger than
planned. So fill that with concrete or build a frame for the pour. I choose
to use more concrete. REMEMBER ALWAYS ORDER MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU NEED.
BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED IT !!
