Ah, here's my fill dirt. Just dump it over there, Bert.
Umm. . . hang on.
He's got a grav-tractor, and we've got shovels. Why not have him dump it in the hole?
Gardening is spiritual work. The shovels allow us to commune with the soil.
Are we trying to have a conversation with the dirt, or are we trying to fill a crater with it?
