OK i got one more thing to prove im an idiot! Ive been out of school for 2 days now and I suddenly forgot how to take an area,(any area but this one is a triangle to make it harder) multiply it by the depth you want the loam and then find out how many cu yards im gonna need. Ive never done anything this big before so I cant say if the numbers i am coming up with are right, its like i suddenly switched into german im so lost. Please help if you can, thanks so much.

Thanks guys, it was that 27 for the # of yards that I really needed. Im going to be putting between 3 and 4 inches down, so i figure about 14 yards. Thanks again
