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.
