HELPFUL TIPS:

  • 1 YARD COVERS 100 SQUARE FEET AT 3 INCHES DEEP
    • (10’ x10’ x 3”) OR A 3’ x 3’ x 3’ CUBE
  • 1 YARD = 27 CUBIC FEET
    • TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH MATERIAL YOU WILL NEED TO COVER AN AREA:
      • MULTIPLY LENGTH X WIDTH OF THE AREA
      • DIVIDE THAT BY 27
      • DIVIDE THAT BY THE MULTIPLE OF 12
      • DETERMINE BY THE DEPTH YOU WILL BE USING
        • -1” DEEP DIVIDE BY 12
        • -2” DEEP DIVIDE BY 6
        • -3” DEEP DIVIDE BY 4
        • -4” DEEP DIVIDE BY 3
        • -6” DEEP DIVIDE BY 2
        • -12” DEEP DIVIDE BY 1
  • AREA OF A CIRCLE:
    • 3.14 x R2 OR 3.14 x RADIUS x RADIUS
  • NUMBER OF BAGS IN A YARD:
    • 2 CU. FT. =13.5 BAGS
    • 1 CU. FT. = 27 BAGS
    • .5 CU. FT. = 54 BAGS
  • SOD (SIZE CAN CHANGE)
    • 2×5
    • TO DETERMINE SOD TAKE TOTAL SQ. FT. AND DIVIDE BY 10
  • GRASS SEED
    • APPROXIMENTLY 7 LBS PER 1000 SQ. FT.
  • LEDGEROCK/FLAGSTONE
    • TON COVERS APPROXIMENTLY 100 SQ. FT.
    • OR 27 -30 FT. LONG x 9 INCHES HIGH
