Default Re: sq ft of lawn to cubic yard

Convert all measurements to the same base unit, and multiply.

2000 square feet * (1 inch / 12) feet = 166.67 cubic feet
2000 square feet * (1.5 inch / 12) feet = 250 cubic feet

So you will need between 167 and 250 cubic feet

If it is sold by the cubic yard,
1 cu yd = 27 cu ft, so you are looking at 7 - 9 cu yds, to fall somewhere in your depth window (and integer yards).
