Re: square feet to cubic yards

need 6" x 400sf = height in square feet x square feet divided by 1 cubic yard

= (.5 X 400)/27

= 7.40741 cubic yards

An area has no volume because it has no thickness, so zero.

An area times a height or thickness is a volume.

Re: square feet to cubic yards

I have 3,692 square feet to cover with Mulch, about 2 inches thick. Can you tell me how many cubic yards of mulch to purchase?

3692 square feet * (2 inches / 12) feet = 615.33 cubic feet

615.33 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 22.8 cubic yard

You need about 23 yards of mulch. Order 10%-20% extra if you care that it compacts, probably not since its mulch.

Re: square feet to cubic yards

My landscaper has given me an estimate for xeriscaping 3500 SQUARE FEET of my lawn. I'm going for a s,all rock at about one inch covering. The rock quarry (my rock supplier)has given me an estimate in CUBIC YARDS. I know that 3x3x3 is a cubic yard, so do I divide the3500 Sq. feet by 27 cubic yards in order to determine how much rock I will actually need and the cost? The cost is \$27 a cubic yard. Pls. help

I don't know if 1" thickness is enough, but it is 1/12 ft, so you need 292 ft³.
At 27 ft³/yd³, you need 11 yd³. As the rock is delivered loose, and will compact, I'd add another 15% or so, and suggest 13 yd³.
