Yards of what? Crushed rock, or Styrofoam peanuts? Keep in mind that some confusion exists with the yard. A yard is a unit of length, not volume. The unit of volume is the cubic yard. But when you get topsoil delivered from the local garden center, they may simply say "yard." How much a cubic yard of something weighs depends on what that something is.
