The acreage covered by a berm 
20111121 

From Katherine: I need to know how to figure the acreage a berm might cover. Berm size is 815 ft. long with a 5' height average at a 3:1 slope It will have a 4 ft. top.
Also how do you figure how wide a base would be for a berm at a 3:1 slope? I am thinking for every 3 ft horizontal I need to go 1 foot vertical starting from the center out. Is this only half the berm and need to mirror it for the other side to get a total base width? Answered by Penny Nom.

From Roy: I need to know how many cubic yards are in a berm 100 ft long 8 ft high and 32 ft wide at the bottom? Looking from the end of the berm it would look like a trangle. Thanks for the help. Answered by Penny Nom.

From casey: My question is two fold. I want to build a dirt berm that is 95 feet long and 8 feet high which has a 45 degree angle on each side of the slope. My first question is how wide will the berm end up being? Second question is how many cubic yards of dirt will I need to get? Thanks! Answered by Harley Weston.
