Does anyone know what the coverage rate for sand is? 1 Yard= how many sq ft at 1" thick? Im trying to figure out a school playground bid. Thanks for any input!:usflag:

There are 27 cubic feet per cubic yard (3x3x3). A cubic foot is a square foot that is 12" deep (27 square feet one foot deep). Since there are 12 inches in a foot it means that if you multiply 27 square feet by 12" you will have 312 square feet at 1" depth.

Is 1 inch thick enough for a playground?

1 cubic yard will cover 1000 sq ft for topdressing about 1/4". 1" would not be enough for a playground...you should have 3-4" minimum.

Its all covered here. Next time you need to know your sq. footage or cubic yard coverage: Length (ft) X Width (ft) X Depth (in) all divided by 324 gives you cubic yard. If you need cubic feet from here, divide by 27.
