Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Cristina, a student:

How many yards of top soil do I need in a area of 2000 square feet with 18" depth.

Hi Cristina,

You can use our volume calculator. Put in 2000 ft for the length, 1 foot for the width to give an area of 2000 square feet and then 18 inches for the depth.
