Question from Brian:

about how many tons of fill dirt would I need to level a area 30 foot by 30 foot and 6 foot deep

Hi Brian,

You can use our volume calculator to calculate the volume of dirt you need.

One you have the volume look at the second paragraph of my response to an earlier question. You can use the same method to determine the weight of the dirt.

Write back if you need more assistance,
