Compute the square footage of your yard by using the appropriate volume formula for the shape of your yard.  For rectangular yards, multiply the length times the width.  For example, if your yard is 10 feet by 15 feet, you would multiply 10 by 15 to get 150 square feet.

Here you will see how much area one yard of material will cover depending on your depth.  For example, if you need to fill in 4 inches of deep, one yard will fill 81 square feet (8' x 10' area)

Here is the formula you need to calculate any soil math problems.  Take the length and times it by width, then times it by the depth.  Here's the tricky part, this is based on feet, not inches, so keep that in mind when calculating.  For example, if you need 6" of dirt, you would times it by .5 deep.  Then when you get the total of all 3 calculations, you divide it by 27.  That gives you how many yards you need for your project.  We also suggest you multiply it by .20 or .30 to compensate for any compaction.

2' x 2' x 2' = 8 cf = 1/3 yard

2' x 4' x 2' = 16 cf = 1/2 yard

4' x 4' x 6" = 8 cf = 1/3 yard

4' x 4' x 1' = 16 cf = 1/2 yard

4' x 8' x 6" = 16 cf = 1/2 yard

4' x 8' x 1' = 32 cf = 1 1/4 yard

4' x 12' x 6" = 24 cf = 1 yard

4' x 12' x 1' = 48 cf = 1 3/4 yard
