    1 yd = 108 sq' at 3" deep.

    I round it to 100 sq' to make it easy to figure.

    find the square footage then multiply by .0031 that gives you the cubic yardage to the INCH. eg

    10' x 10' x .0031 = .31 cubic yards for 1 INCH for 100 sq ft.

    if you want it 3" deep .31 x 3 = .93 cubic yds.
