how to allow for soil settling when calculating for berm
Creating about a 20" ht long berm in front of fence to help with screening. How do I calculate the amount of soil needed for fill and allow for settling of soil?

I would actually recommend you contact your local extension service about this. The problem is that different types of soil will settle differently. It would be very difficult for someone who is not familiar with your local soil type to help you with this.
