    Just curious,

    I got a request to spread enough loam for 10,000sf yesterday and then hydroseed. The customer will have it delivered and I will spread with my bobcat. The terrain is pretty level and 2-3" of topsoil should be sufficient.
    I think my numbers are off here. Im coming up with roughly 90yds of screened loam. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  2. 1 cubic yd will cover 108 sq ft at 3 inches deep, looks like your pretty close!

    Thanks so much tim- I was thinking I'd round off at 100yds just to be on the safe side. I appreciate the help.
