My ground is very soft and there are small holes. I think i have voles and maybe a mole or two. the question is how can i get rid of them without killing them i know there is a lot of products what is best way.

Voles often use abandoned mole tunnels so you may very well have both. Moles feed on insects including grubs so ridding your yard of these tasty tidbits will sometimes be enough to make the moles and voles go away on their own. There are lots of purported repellants but the ony sure way is to trap the animals. You can try using the repellant products or you can learn to live with the moles if you'd rather not trap them. Wish I had a real solution for you.
