    their is 300 sq. feet in one cubic yard per 1 inch as far as grass seed depends on what type this will also determine amount needed to spread per sq ft.

    20,000 sqft*.25ft (3" deep) = 5,000 cubic ft

    5,000 cubic feet/27 cubic ft/yd = 185 yds

    Seed - will depend on seed - check with a seed seller near you.
