Measurements

This is how to determine how much material you need.

One cubic yard covers 100 square feet,
approximately 2" - 3" deep.

27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard.
1 cubic yard = .765 cubic meter.
1 cubic meter = 1.3 cubic yards.


EXAMPLE:

If your work area is 50' long and 20' wide, and you want material 0.25' deep (or 3" deep) the formula is: 50' x 20' x 0.25' = 250 cubic feet.

250 cubic feet divided by 27 (one cubic yard) = 9.26 cubic yards of material needed.
