1 cu. yd. is 3′ x 3′ x 3′ (2 skidloader buckets full or 9 wheelbarrows)
1 cu. yd. covers:
- 325 sq. ft – 1″ deep
- 162 sq. ft. – 2″ deep
- 108 sq. ft – 3″ deep
- 81 sq. ft – 4″ deep
- 54 sq. ft. – 6″ deep
- 40 sq. ft. – 8″ deep
- 27 sq. ft. – 12″ deep
To figure cubic yards of soil: Take the length (feet) x width (feet) x depth (inches) divide by 324 = the cubic yards needed. [For example, you have an area 6′ x 10′ x 3″ = 60 sq ft ÷ 324 = .56 cubic yards or 1 skid loader scoop.
