Well.....A cubic yard is a measure of volume, so the answer is....it takes a cubic yard (IE it would fill a box that was one yard wide by one yard long by one yard high.

Is a yard the same as a cubic yard?
When referring to garden or building materials such as top soil, ready-mix concrete, etc., the term yard is usually used as an abbreviation of cubic yard. In actuality, yard is a length or distance equal to three feet or 36 inches, and a cubic yard is a volume equivalent to a cube one yard long, one yard wide, and one yard deep.
How many square feet is in a yard of soil?
The language used in this question indicates some confusion, so we must clarify some points first. First, although a yard is a unit of length, when you go to a commercial garden center, a "yard" of soil is really a cubic yard. In other words, it's a volume; it has length, width, and height (or depth). But people in the business just call it a yard. Second, a square foot is a unit of area, not volume, so you cannot convert from cubic yards to square feet. However, a cubic yard of soil will cover a certain area of ground, but you have to know how deep you want the soil to be. If you're covering the ground to do a reseeding of lawn, it doesn't have to be too deep, so a (cubic) yard will cover a good amount of ground, but if you're filling in some flower beds or vegetable garden, it won't cover as much area. A cubic yard of soil will cover approximately an 18' x 18' square (324 square feet) to a depth of one inch.
