You can measure the surface of the dirt in square yards. That would be nine square feet.

However the volume or amount of dirt cannot be measured in square yards or square feet. The amount of dirt in a volume of one cubic yard would be 27 cubic feet. ( 3x3x3=27 )

The amount of dirt in a square yard to a depth of 0.5 feet would be 4.5 cubic feet. (3x3x0.5=4.5)
