    If I assume that the area is 100ft x 100ft at 10 inches depth you will need 310 yards

    They do realize how expensive this is going to get right?

    You will need the same amount of soil hauled in as you haul out. 310 in, 310 out

    Here is a link to a web site you enter the measurments in and it tells you the number of cubic yards

    You will also need to calculte for any damage (ruts and torn up grass) that the trucks and equipment will do to the yard if its not close to the street.

    310 yards assuming a 10" depth.
