    Any input would be appreciated. 10,000 sq ft of lawn. How many yards of topsoil would be sufficient to top dress ?

    Thanks guys. 10 yards is that too much for 10,000 sq ft ?

    10,000 sq ft at 1/4" is 208 cu ft. 208 cu ft is 7.7 cu yards.

    So if you are going for a 1/4" topdress you need 7.7 yards. At 10 yards are a little heavy but in reality about 5/16" topdress, no big deal as you won't get it that close in the real world.
