How many 2 cubic feet bags will you need to equal 5 cubic yards?
Since 5 cubic yard equals 15 cubic feet, you will need (8) 2 cubic feet bags to cover 5 cubic yards
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)
It would depend on what size of bag, 60lb or 80lb. one 60lb bag usually yeilds about 0.45 cubic feet once mixed (this will vary slightly depending on how much water you add). So 42 bags times 0.45 cubic feet equals 18.9 cubic feet. there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so divide 18.9 by 27 and you get about 0.7 cubic yards. if you had 42 bags that weighed 80lbs. then you'd…
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…
I am allowed 10 cubic yards of sand annually for our beach at cabin how many 50 lb bags would this equate to?
If you are trying to figure out the 40lb bags of dirt they sell at the store... It takes about 50 of those to equal 1 (cubic) yard of dirt. I just had to do the research on it too. there are 3 feet in a yard so i figure cubic feet and cubic yard would be the same principle. 1 1/2 bags would seem right.
