Here's the formula: 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard. 1 cubic yard will cover 324 square feet at a depth of 1 inch. 2000 square feet divided by 324 square feet = 6.2 yards (rounded). Another approach: 7 cubic yard X 324 square feet = 2268 square feet of coverage at a depth of 1 inch.

There are no feet in a cubic yard.1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet12 cubic yards = 324 cubic feet

The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth in inches)

The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the stone, in inches)

This is not a correct conversion. Cubic feet is a measure of volume while square feet is a measure of area.

1 cubic yard covers 324 square feet per inch of thickness, divide 324 by thickness in inches to get coverage, i.e. 4 inches thick would cover 324/4=81 square feet, 36 inches thick would cover (you guessed it) 9 square feet.

1 cubic yard of concrete fills 27/depth in feet square feet.The number of cubic yards you need is(length of the pad in feet) x (width of the pad in feet) x (depth of the pad in inches)/324

1 square yard = 9 square feet 36 square yards = 324 square feet

You want to cover it with 6" of material.Multiply, 12' x 18' x *.5' to get 108 cubic feet. You see, 6" is .5 feet or 1/2 a foot.Now, devide 108 cubic feet by 27 cubic feet(1 yard) to get your total yardage at 4 yards.If you want a 3" cover you use 1/4' or .25'. A four inch cover is 1/3 foot or .33', etc.OR ---- Multiply your square footage by .003 for 1" coverage.0061 for a 2" coverage .0092 for a 3" coverage and.0123 for a 4" coverage. It takes 12.3 cubic yards of top soil to cover 1,000 square feet at 4". Hope this helps. ----

1 square foot => \$7.50324 square feet = (324) times (1 square foot) => (324) times (\$7.50) = \$2,430.00

There are 3 feet in one yard. Therefore, 324 feet is equal to 324/3 = 108 yards.

(324) divided by (the depth of the loam in inches)

That depends on how deep you pour it.The number of cubic yards you need is(length of the pad in feet) x (width of the pad in feet) x (depth of the pad in inches)/324For your 28' x 20' pad, that's [ (1.728) x (depth in inches) ] cubic yards.

One cubic yard will cover a 324 square-foot area with one inch of mulch. However your mulch should be 2 to 3 inches thick to maintain moisture and prevent weed growth. Be careful not to go to thick or you will cause mold to form in the mulch.

1 yard = 3 feet therefore 324 yards = 972 feet

One square foot is equal to 144 square inches. Therefore, 324 square inches is equal to 324/144 = 2.25 square feet.

The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the stone, in inches)

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.

Various types of rock are used as construction and landscaping materials. For example, crushed granite is a convenient and inexpensive material for paving driveways and garden paths. It is necessary on such projects to figure out the cubic yards of material needed, and rock is usually sold in cubic yards. A cubic yard is a measurement of volume, rather than area, and it tells you how much material is needed to fill a space, instead of just covering the surface.Measure the length and width, in feet, of the area to be covered.Multiply the length by the width to get the square footage. For example, 20 feet multiplied by 10 feet is 200 square feet.Measure the depth you want, in inches--how high you want the layer of crushed granite or other rock. Multiply this number by the square footage. For example, 200 square feet multiplied by 2 inches is 400.Divide this by 324, the number of inches in a cubic yard (a cubic yard is 27 cubic feet). For example, 400 divided by 324 is 1.2 cubic yards

One square yard contains 9 square feet. So you obtain the answer by multiplying the number of square yards by 9. In this case the answer is 36 x 9 or 324 square feet.

324 square inches converts to 2.25 square feet.

One cubic yard of soil covers a 3 x 3 x 3 foot area - in essence, 9 feet.Depending on the material, it can weigh up to 2000 pounds (1 cu yard of sand is 2000 pounds - that's a lot of sand!)To be more precise, there are online calculators to help you determine how much you need -- you will need to know the area you want to cover in square feet, and to what depth. From there, you can calculate the cubic feet and come to your answer!Useful Answer:The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the top soil, in inches)

324 square feet. Length x width = square feet.
