The answer will depend on how big (or small) the bags of sand are!
80# bags are 0.6 cubic feet and it takes 41 to make a cubic yard. In that case, 60# bags must be 0.45 cubic feet and it would take 55 to make a cubic yard.
ABOUT 43 bags. Dry sand weighs ABOUT 100 lbs per cubic foot- and you need 21.3 cubic feet.
When it comes to mulch or concrete, a so-called "yard"actually means a "cubic yard".1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet2 cubic yards = 54 cubic feet...6 cubic yards = 162 cubic feet ( = 81 bags )
1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet, thus 1 cubic feet = 1/27 cubic yards and 2 cubic feet = 2/27 cubic yards (1 bag of mulch) Landscapers speak in yards of mulch needed for a garden. They are referring to cubic yards. A bag of mulch is 2 cubic feet, so you would need 13.5 bags of mulch to equal 1 cubic yard (yard of mulch)
1 cubic yard is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic feet 49 yards = 49x27 = 1323 cubic feet 1323/2 = 661 bags - that is a lot of bags! Make sure by yards you mean actual cubic yards, not linear yards, in which case you need to know depth and width of mulch as well
81. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard
1.85 cubic yards...probably 25 bags or so
You need10.8/(the number of cubic feet of sand in each bag) bags.
13.5 bags are required.
Since 5 cubic yard equals 15 cubic feet, you will need (8) 2 cubic feet bags to cover 5 cubic yards
Well, gee, I think that would be 2 bags. But if you have found a bag that is 2 cubic yards, that is ONE HUGE BAG...Enough to fill the back of a pick-up truck. I think you better look into your phrasing, one cubic yard of mulch will cover 100 square feet, or an area that is 10' x 10'. IMPROVED ANSWER: I think you mean that 1 bag of mulch will cover 2 cubic feet. That's the standard bag sold at Lowes & Home Depot. 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet (3'x3'x3'=27). Therefore 4 cubic yards is equal to 108 cubic feet. You would need 54 bags (108/2=54).
It depends on the size of the bag.
It depends on the size of the bag of mulch. If the bags are 3 cu.ft., 9 bags equal 1 yard, but if the bags are 2 cu.ft., approximately 13-14 bags equal 1 yard.
