Answer: A cubic foot of top soil weighs in the neighborhood of 75 - 100 pounds. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. Hence, one cubic yard of top soil weighs between 2025 …and 2700 pounds. Moisture content would make this figure variable
On one site I found the weight of one cubic yard of topsoil listed as 1,35 US tons
One cubic yard of soil covers a 3 x 3 x 3 foot area - in essence, 9 feet. Depending on the material, it can weigh up to 2000 pounds (1 cu yard of sand is 2000 pounds - that…'s a lot of sand!) To be more precise, there are online calculators to help you determine how much you need -- you will need to know the area you want to cover in square feet, and to what depth. From there, you can calculate the cubic feet and come to your answer! Useful Answer: The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the top soil, in inches)
Depends on the content but between 800-1400 lbs. Per yard.
Well.....A cubic yard is a measure of volume, so the answer is....it takes a cubic yard (IE it would fill a box that was one yard wide by one yard long by one yard high. …If you follow this link (http://www.rexius.com/faq.html) you will see a cubic yard of soil typically weighs around 1300 to 1600 lbs. To give you an alternate form of measurement, you are looking for 27 cu ft to fill a cubic yard of topsoil.
Hi, Only guesses can be made because of unknown moisture content. Peace, crigby
What is the weight of one cubic yard of cement? If you are asking the weight of 1 cubic yard of CONCRETE it is approximately 2 tons or 4000 pounds per cubic yard when wet.
about 1500 pounds
It should cover 12 square feet, if spread one inch deep. If spread two inches deep it will cover 6 square feet.
I checked a few websites and there isn't a lot of agreement, because topsoil content and moisture content can vary. The attached link says a cubic yard is around 1 ton, and th…e calculator gives 1.1 tons, and other links say 1.2 tons.
Depending on the material and moisture content anywhere from around a ton to 1.5 tons.
As much as the supplier needs to charge in your location. Have you checked local suppliers for quotes?
A cubic yard of topsoil, if compacted to get the air pockets out will weigh more than 1 tone. If the topsoil is loose, a cubic yard of it could weigh about 1 ton. A lot depend…s on the topsoil, and whether it has more stone dust or less in it. The more moist the topsoil is, the more likely it will weigh more than a ton.
Depends on how dewatered it is
600-800 pounds dry, wet double that
