i need to fill a hole with topsoil. the hole is 40x18.5. also, it's 5"deep.
They look good...you did measure twice, correct?
what looks good? oooo, i'm sorry, the question was, how many yards of top soil do i need?
are you really looking for an answer, or is this another quiz?
You should be good with 12yds.
are you sure? are u positive? i came up with alot more
Sounds correct to me I came up with the same figure 12 yrds what are u coming up with bobby!
i'm commin up with 18 yds. 40x18.5=740 sq ft. one yd of soil covers 100 sq ft 2 " deep. so to cover this area at 2" deep would be 7.4 yds. but, i need 5 " so, i multiply the formula by 2.5, this equals 18.5 yds of topsoil. i cant screw it up, it's all wheelbarrowing and shoveling, through a tiny gate. i've always used the formula of 1 yd of soil, covers 100 sq ft, 2" deep. it's never failed me. am i wrong?
I came up with 12 also bobby.
Doesn't 1yd cover 100 sq. ft 3" deep?
11.417yds of loam to fill the hole
