Residential Topsoil and Fills

Topsoil

Bags of TopsoilTopsoil is the top layer of a healthy garden. Michell Excavating produces three topsoil blends and brings in a variety of landscape products, mulches and fills for your home and garden. Topsoil can be picked up from our yard or delivered for an addition cost. We have a variety of landscape products that can help you with fertilizing your ornamental or vegetable garden, soil for planting a new lawn or garden bed, rodo soil mix and general garden fertilizers in an assortment of different blends. All our fills and topsoil are locally sourced and stored. See below for a list of our Products and Prices.

Fill & Roadbase

Michell Excavating has a variety of fills and road bases for the foundations of many projects. Driveway paving, paver stones and garden paths each require different fills or roadbases, and we have them all. See below for a list of our Products and Prices.

How much will I need?

Some of the topsoil in our yard

Fill and topsoil is measured in cubic yards. A cubic yard is 3 feet tall by 3 feet wide and deep. To estimate how many yards of fill you will need, use our online fill calculator to estimate.

 

Residential landscaping

A healthy garden usually has 3 to 4 inches of good quality topsoil to help fertilize and keep plants strong and healthy. Use our online fill calculator to estimate how many yards of topsoil you will need for your job.

Patio or deck gardens or potted plants

If you are in a condo or a townhouse, you may not have a planted garden, but you may enjoy a small space or a potted plant garden. We can offer topsoils and mulches to the exact amount you need, at a cost that is cheaper than buying potting soil from a garden shop or grocery store. We have a Bag Your Own area, where we supply the bags and you bag your product, this is very convenient for the small yard and much cheaper than products available at hardware stores. See below for a list of our Products and Prices.

Large orders

Fills and topsoils are a little less expensive as the volume increases. If you need a lot of fill or topsoil, please contact us and ask about high volume prices.

Pick up or Delivery

Pick up

Michell Excavating offers bag your own topsoil, manures, and mulches. We provide you with the bags, or you can bring in your own garbage cans. We supply the bags; you supply the muscle. Or, bring a truck or utility trailer and we will load your product.

Delivery

Deliveries are priced by the time it takes to deliver your product, and the size of truck you need to get it there. Michell Excavating is located in Saanichton, so delivery times vary depending where you live.

We can also spread or place your new topsoil for you with a slinger truck which has a built in conveyor system rather than a traditional dump truck.

Delivery prices are found below; spreading is an additional charge.
