It requires skills and knowledge of the process, understanding of soil conditions, and extensive experience in this field.

There are several backfilling methods, but the most common ones are listed below.


This is one the most common backfilling methods where soil and organic materials are compacted together to make a coarse, wet compound that is then used to fill and level the trench. In this compaction method, the soil to be put in is placed in layers called lifts.


Another common backfilling method is by using flowable fill. In this case, a fill (that is actually a cement mixture) is put back into the trench to close the void and level the soil. A whole cement truck is brought to the site of the backfilling. As the name suggests, the flowable fill is not too coarse or dry in nature and can spread over an area.


This is a popular backfill method using a specific material that hasn’t been compacted. First, the material has to be dumped in the trench, and left like that for a few hours. Later, the contractor comes back and applies pressurized water to the fill. Although this is a simpler backfill method.
