I have a customer who requires some soil delivered with reseeding of yard.She asked me about how much soil should she have delivered.I will perform the actual spreading and seeding a truck will deliver.The area we are talking about are 4-5 patches, 3-5 ft in size in front yard.What I am looking for is amount in yards for this work.Thanks Dave.Work is for sep/oct.

i usually use this formula and its been pretty close. length x width divided by 120 = # of tons @ 2"

2" really isn't much...suggest you bump it up to 3 or so.
