    Topsoil meas.....


    Anyone know the meas for finding how much tonage you need for either sq ft or meas before sq ft?

    Meas are 30' x 2240' which is 67,200 sq ft

    Well they ask in the blueprints for it to be 4 inch thick? Coming up with 280 tons??? Sounds right or not enough... WHAT IS THE CORRECT MEASURMENT?? To get the tonage?

    a ton is about 2200-2400 lbs

    when you order from a hualing company they sell it by yards (12-16 yard loads).
