How many yards of dirt would it take to fill an area 250 feet wide by 80 feet long by 8 feet high?
A "yard" is actually a cubic yard and contains 27 cubic feet
(3X3X3=27). To find the volume of your area, multiply length times
width, times height (or depth). 250X80X8=160,000 cubic feet. Divide
that by 27 and you get approximately 5925.9 cubic yards. If you
want to know the weight of your fill, you will need to determine
the specific composition of your dirt and then calculate the weight
of a cubic foot or yard of it.
