Yes. Sinkholes can form in lots of different places. Some are more prone to it than others.
What Is A Sinkhole?
A sinkhole is a circular depression or hole in the ground. It’s caused by the collapse of the underlying supporting layer of soil.
What Causes It?
Sinkholes in your yard are probably being caused by water eroding away the supporting layer of soil. The part under what you normally see.
Sometimes it’s a natural occurrence. Limestone, a really soft mineral, gets whisked away by rainfall over time and sinkhole forms.

Other times it’s manmade. For example the sinkhole in Raleigh NC, on Newton Rd, back in 2018.
It was caused by a pipe collapsing, and another being blocked. The heavy rainfall caused the dirt under the road to wash away. 25 feet deep.
And it took months to repair. You can read about it on this local news website by clicking here.
