Question: I need to buy some potting soil for a raised planting bed that is 6'x24'x1'. How do you figure how many 2 cu. ft. bags of potting soil that I will need? Thank you very much. Cheryl


Hi Cheryl.

This is just the volume of the bed. That's height times depth times width. Multiply the dimensions together, then divide by the number of cubic feet in each bag.
