Unless you know the thickness of material you propose to spread over the area, zero cubic yards. Square feet have no thickness.

4 inches is one-third of a foot, so 1000 ft.
That is 37 yd or 28.3 m

There are 12 inches in a foot, and 27 cubic feet in a cubuic yard

2000 x (2/12) x 1/27 = 12.35 yd

You can't convert square feet, which is area, flat surface to cubic yards.

length times width is square
this is the conversion chart for area

length times width times hight would be a cubical measurement.
this is the chart for volume
