That depends upon how deep the soil bed is and how much moisture is in the topsoil. But here are some ballpark numbers for you: A yard of soil will cover a 10' by 10' area to a depth of three inches. In other words, figure a third of a yard per 100 square feet for every inch of depth. Length x width x # of inches deep divided by 324 = the number of cubic yards needed for that task.

It depends how much you need.

You already have a square yard of topsoil, so how does 20 inches of depth get you the volume of topsoil? There are 36 inches in a yard, and you have 20 inches of topsoil depth that's 20/36ths of a yard of topsoil depth. That's 0.555... or about 0.56 yards. The volume of topsoil is 1 yard by 1 yard by 0.56 yards, or about 0.56 cubic yards of topsoil.
