Soil in a raised bed 2018-06-24
From Georgia:
Good Afternoon,

I'm planning on building a raised bed garden measuring 6 feet long x 4 feet wide x 12 inches deep. I'm not sure how to calculate the amount of soil to fill it up. I will have to purchase the soil in 2 cubic feet bags.

I've read several articles about this topic on various gardening websites, and one of them stated it would take a ton of soil to fill up an 8 foot long x 4 foot wide x 12 inch deep raised bed garden.

I'd greatly appreciate it if you could help me out with this quandary.

Thank you for your prompt and courteous response.

Kind Regards,
