FILL MATERIAL

What is Fill Material?

Fill material is an earth-based material commonly used throughout development and construction projects to fill in a hole or depression in the ground. While fill material can be used to ‘fill’, it can also be used to expand, with other applications being inclusive of artificial mound, grade, and elevation development.


Fill material is commonly seen in highway maintenance when building up highway shoulders and also in low-lying construction sites - being used to level building foundations and reduce the chances of flooding and other negative implications.


Fill materials are often mined from commercial mining sites and include a vast array of materials. Once mined, fill material is typically imported by a supplier and then exported to a project site to the specifications of the project’s geotechnical engineer. While fill material can be utilised across residential settings, many suppliers will only provide bulk fill material services, making it more common across larger commercial applications.

Different types of Fill Material

Whether managing large scale landscaping, construction, and development projects or simply building a retaining wall - fill material is a vital factor in ensuring the quality and longevity of a project. There are a vast array of different types of fill material which all hold different benefits and implications for compaction, foundations, and drainage. Some of the most common Fill Materials include:


Coarse-Grained Soil


Coarse-Grained Soil is a more common form of fill material which consists of large grained materials. When ordering Coarse-Grained Soil as a fill material you can expect to see sandy soil types, gravel soils, or a mixture of both. This form of fill material is ideal for projects requiring compaction and foundational support without sacrificing drainage.


Fine-Grained Soil


While not as common as its coarse counterpart, fine-grained soil has been popularised in construction given its unique properties. Fine-Grained Soil as a fill material is excellent when compaction and foundations are a priority given the materials fine-grain. Consequently, fine-grained soil should not be utilised when seeking a fill material that provides good drainage solutions.


Rock


More notably known as ‘crushed’ rock or stone - Rocks are another common fill material. Given its properties, rocks are primarily used as a fill material when drainage is a priority. Rocks and Stones can be frequently seen in driveway construction and as a landscape filler to protect from erosion and aid in superior drainage.
