How much does a cubic yard cover?

Here’s a look at our Estimating Guide…

One cubic yard covers:

120 square feet: 2″ thick
80 square feet: 3″ thick
60 square feet: 4″ thick
40 square feet: 6″ thick
20 square feet: 12″ thick

How do I figure cubic yards?

Multiply the LENGTH (ft) by the WIDTH (ft) to get the AREA in Sqft.

Multiply the AREA by the DEPTH (ft) to get the CUBIC FEET:

2″ = .166 feet
3″ = .250 feet
4″ = .333 feet
5″ = .416 feet
6″ = .500 feet
12″ = 1.00 feet

Divide cubic feet by 27 to get the CUBIC YARDS…

EXAMPLE: 42′ long x 8′ wide x .250 (3″ deep) = 84 cubic feet / 27 = 3.12 cubic cards

How much does a cubic yard weigh?

Mulch Products: 400-800 lbs.
Compost: 1,000 – 1,600 lbs.
Soil Blends: 1,600 – 2,000 lbs.

How much can my pickup hold?

A full size ¾ or 1 ton pickup can hold 2-3 cubic yards of mulch, slightly rounded, but weight must be considered. Most full size pickups can handle 3 yards of mulch, 2 yards of compost or 1-1.5 yards of soil product depending on the size of the pickup truck bed. Never load more than what is reasonable or what your vehicle is specified to carry.
