Best Answer

A yard of dirt is 3ft x 3ft x 3ft, or 27 cubic ft. The hole you need to fill is 8ft x 4ft x 1ft, or 32 cubic ft. You'll need 32/27th yards of dirt, or about 1.19 yards of dirt. Call it a yard and a half if you want to account for settling.

A yard is 27 cubic feet Youare covering 256 x 2/12 = 42.67 cu ft So you need 42.67/27 = 1.6 yards

Divide everything by 3.10x20x2/3= 400/3

1 ft = 1/3 yd → 1 cu ft = 1 ft × 1 ft × 1 ft = 1/3 yd × 1/3 yd × 1/3 yd = 1/23 cu yd So work out the volume of your hole by multiplying the dimensions together (ft × ft × ft) and divide the result by 27 to get the volume in cu yards, ie: volume in cubic yards = (ft × ft × ft) ÷ 27

6 cubic yards of dirt will cover 70 sq ft ... 2 ft 3 3/4 inches deep
