Best Answer

One inch = 1/12 foot

1500 x 1/12 = 125 cubic feet

sand weighs 100 pounds /cu ft

weight = 100 x 125 = 12500 pounds

at 2000 lbs/ton that is

12500/2000 = 6.25 tons

Q: How many tons of sand to cover 1500 square ft a 1 inch deep?

92.593 cubic yards for every inch deep.

Ten cubic feet will do the job!

1.85 cubic yards.

(33.33)/(the number of cubic feet in each bag)

That's going to depend on how deep or shallow you spread it. If you spread it one foot deep, it covers an area of 2 square feet. If you spread it one inch deep, it covers an area of 24 square feet.

It depends to what depth. One cubic INCH will cover 400 square feet in sandstone dust but it will be only 0.00002 inches deep!

It takes 0.6234 gallon (rounded) to cover one square foot of area 1 inch deep.

You would need about 1 cubic yard of topsoil to cover a 200 square foot area with 1 inch of soil.

3000 sq ft * 4 inches = 1000 cubic feet.

That's going to depend on how deep or shallow you spread it. If you spread it one foot deep, it covers an area of 2 square feet. If you spread it one inch deep, it covers an area of 24 square feet.

Here is my take: 1 gallon of water equals 231 cubic inches 1 square foot, 1 inch tall equals 144 cubic inches (12"x12"X1") 1 square foot needs 0.624 gallons to equal 1 inch of cover (144 cubic inched divided by 231 cubic inches) 16 square feet would require 9.975 gallons of water to be covered 1 inch deep. (16*0.624) **Runsky**

You want to cover it with 6" of material.Multiply, 12' x 18' x *.5' to get 108 cubic feet. You see, 6" is .5 feet or 1/2 a foot.Now, devide 108 cubic feet by 27 cubic feet(1 yard) to get your total yardage at 4 yards.If you want a 3" cover you use 1/4' or .25'. A four inch cover is 1/3 foot or .33', etc.OR ---- Multiply your square footage by .003 for 1" coverage.0061 for a 2" coverage .0092 for a 3" coverage and.0123 for a 4" coverage. It takes 12.3 cubic yards of top soil to cover 1,000 square feet at 4". Hope this helps. ----
