Use the calculation below to determine how much material you will need.

Total Area: (square feet)

Desired Thickness of Topsoil: (inches)

Total Cubic Yards Needed:

There are 27 cubic feet in a yard. Your typical 8' pickup box can hold about 1yard of material.

How do I find square feet?

Draw your site as accurately as possible using graph paper if available. For oddly-shaped beds, divide the area into combinations of rectangles, triangles, and/or circles. Use the following formulas to determine area:

  • Rectangle: Area = length x width
  • Circle: Area = 3.1416 x the square of the radius
  • Triangle: Area = 1/2 x length of base x length of height
  • To determine topsoil requirements for areas of varying grade, use a transit to indicate exact fill requirements...or estimate an average fill depth.
