How much is a yard of dirt?
More accurately, it's a cubic yard.
- A cubic yard is a unit of volume. It tells you how much space something occupies. Picture in your head a box that measures three feet on each edge. The space inside that box measures one cubic yard.
- A cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet. One cubic foot holds about 7.5 gallons. So, the box above can hold over 200 gallons of liquid -- assuming it is waterproof and won't leak all over the place.
- If you wish to know how much a cubic yard of dirt weighs, well, that's another kettle of fish. (I'm not sure what system of units the kettle of fish belongs to, but that's an answer to another question.)
- The weight of a cubic yard of dirt can vary greatly depending upon how much water is in it and how well packed it is. Moist topsoil weighs about 90 pounds per cubic foot, so a yard of it will weigh about 2400 pounds, more or less.

\n. \n How Much Does Dirt Weigh \n. \n. \nThere are lots of variables. Is it sandy, loamy, clay or mixture? Is it saturated with water or very dry? There is a very wide range, but I would expect it to weigh about 4-5 pounds a cubic foot, with a variability of several pounds either way.\n. … \n A "yard" is a ton \nI think the weight-per-cubic-foot estimate above is low. Generally, a yard of topsoil is about one ton. Note that "a yard" in this case really means a cubic yard, which is 27 cubic feet. So, a cubic foot of topsoil is about 74 pounds, which seems to make sense inasmuch as a cubic foot of pure water is about 62 pounds.. \nDepending on dirt of course but, approximately 75% of it's volume.\nAggregates rule of thumb, the smaller the pieces the lighter the load per volume\n1 yard of black dirt=+/- 1500lbs\n1 yard of 8" boulders =+/- 3500lbs.\nboulders or compressed mass.

It all depends on condition it is If its new it going to be alot but some used ones can be as low as 1,000
Answer . A silt fence will help to stop large loss by water run off, but the fence will stop the mud at the fence boundary; you might try planting ground cover plants whose roots will help hold the soil in place.
The weight of a cubic yard of dirt depends on the nature of the dirt and how densely it is packed.
Must know the depth to arrive at cubic yards, but there are ~4840 Sq. Yds in one acre
There is 36 inches that equal to a yard. 36 inches, 1 yard, or 90 centimeters.
A cubic foot of dirt is about 100 pounds. To fill a ton, 20 wouldbe needed, but to fill a cubic yard, 27 would be needed. As such, aton of dirt would only fill about .74 cubic yards.
I say its about $12.00 or $13.00. You can check in a store like in Walmart or where you get plants.
1 yard of dirt = 1.45 tons of dirt. The above is a function guideline, but it really depends on the type of dirt in question, and how wet that dirt is. For baseball dirt I like to use 1 yard = 1.3 tons
There is no exact way to determine how much a yard of dirt willweigh. It really depends on the content of the dirt.
It depends on sevaral factors.. 1. How thick the dirt is. 2. How compact the dirt is.. Just a rule of thumb. (per cubic yard). 3 inches deep will cover an area 5.5' x 20'. 6 inches deep will cover an area 5.5' x 10'. 1' deep with cover an area of about 5.5' x 5'
One cubic yard of dirt is equal to 202 gallons or 27 cubic feet. Itis also equal to 0.7646 cubic meters or 807.9 quarts.
Depends on how deep you want the soil to be... 4" is a pretty good soil depth (in my opinion).... So, converting from cubic yards to cubic feet... 8 cu.yds x 27 ft/cu. yd = 256 cu. ft. We'll spread the dirt 4" (0.33'). 256 cu.ft/ 0.33 ft = 775.75 sq. ft. ========. Hope this helps!!
Depends on the type of dirt, what kind of yard you are using, etc... Generally, it will be a couple pounds or so.
This answer will vary depending on what type of dirt it is, if it is a yard high, or a yard long, or whether there are particles in the dirt that will cause it to be heavier, such as water. But a normal yard high of dirt and I am assuming this as if it is a yard long and high, would be about ten to …twenty pounds. This is answered off of the top of my head, so don't think it as 100% correct.. Hope I helped you well enough! ( Full Answer )
There are twenty-seven cubic feet in a cubic yard. So, you'd have 27,000 cubic feet in 1000 cubic yards. Assuming you leave each cubic foot intact and since there are 43,560 square feet in an acre then you'd be able to cover over half an acre. At only 6" deep you'd cover over an acre.
A 'yard' is a cubic measure of material 3 x 3 x 3 feet. Commonly used in landscaping and materials such as sands, soils and small stone delivery. A cubic yard is actually quite a lot of sand or soil - and would fill about 10-12 garden wheel barrows. A 'yard' is also used as a common measurement of… 'bucket' size of earthmovers and loaders. ANS2 A yard is a volume measure used for soils and loose material. It is equal to 27 cubic feet. You can cover a 6 x 9 foot area 6 inches deep with a yard of material. ( Full Answer )

My suggestion is not to buy fill dirt but to go to a local construction site and pick some up there. Waste dirt is usually left over from leveling the land to build. A foreman/site manager might just let you have all the dirt you would like.
This question cannot be answered as a cubic yard is a measure of volume and 40 pounds is a measure of weight.
Volume = Width x Length x Height Convert your values to feet: 2 yd x 3 yd x 1 yd = 6 ft x 9 ft x 3 ft = 162 cubic yards.
Need to know the specifics of the dump truck you had in mind. Tandem axle dumps in the company I work for... if they have a 'dirt tub' body, they can carry 16 cubic yards. The ones with the 'rock tub' dump bodies can carry 15 cubic yards.

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 squar…e yard to a depth of 0.5 feet would be 4.5 cubic feet. (3x3x0.5=4.5) ( Full Answer )
When a person speaks of a ' yard ' of dirt, sand, cement or similar material, they actually mean a ' cubic yard '. A yard is a measurement of length. A cubic yard is a measurement of volume. 60 (cubic) yards of dirt is the equivalent of 1,620 cubic feet of dirt. One cubic yard is measured as a…n amount that is 3 feet wide x 3 feet long x 3 feet high, or 27 cubic feet. 60 cubic yards equals 27 cubic feet x 60, which equals 1,620 cubic feet. If you spread 60 cubic yards of dirt one foot thick you'd have an area of 1,620 square feet. If you spread this dirt 6 inches thick you'd have an area of 3,240 square feet. ( Full Answer )
Well.. I'm no freak on dirt breathers. but i would say that your lungs fill up with dirt and you die slowly.
I just got seven cubic yards of dirt and it was a dump truck load. It was a couple tons. A cubic foot is aout 100 pounds. So figure 900 pounds per cubic yard. If you are figuring that the dirt you received was 100lbs per cubic foot, than a cubic yard, which is 27 cubic feet, would weigh 2700lbs. So…, 7 cubic yards using your figures of 100lbs per cubic foot should have weighed 18,900lbs. ( Full Answer )
You can use topsoil. If you live in a city or town, you can have it trucked in and poured onto your yard, provide you have hired landscapers and payed for the soil and trucking in the meantime.
A yard is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic feet, so 7 yards is 7x27=189 cubic feet

We need to know "remove it" from what. Also what kind of "dirt", hard packed gravel, topsoils, sand etc.
A liter is a measurement of volume, so a liter of dirt is a liter of dirt. 1 liter = 1000 milliliters.
First, the term "dirt" is way too vague. -it could be any of a number of types of soils,sands or rock, all of differing density . - An F-150 has a bed volume of approximately 2 cu yards. If you filled that level with standard, dry topsoil it will weigh approximately 2,000 pounds. Average building …rubble will be about 3,200 pounds. Wet beach sand will be about 3,180 pounds ( Full Answer )
I very much doubt anyone sells "dirt" - Landscape companies and thelike sell various grades of sand or soil . You need to specefy exactly what you want,and I'm pretty sure "dirt" will not be on their list.
One possibility is: 5 yard long, by 2 yards wide, by 2 yards high. 5 x 2 x 2 = 20 cubic yards
27 square feet. A "yard" is a short form of "cubic yard" of something...dirt,concrete, etc. A cubic yard is 3 x 3 x 3 = 27 cubic feet.
