Need 6 inches thick top soil in an aria that messures 12 by16 feet how meny yards woud that be?
A yard of something in a bag means a cubic yard, which is 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet = 27 cubic feet. 12 x 16 x 0.5 = 96 cubic feet. 96 / 27 = about 3.5 yards.
Look for soil with bark or peat, not forest floor products. Fertilizing new soil is critical b/c you're starting with nothing.
There are three feet in a yard, so I would suppose in 200 feet it would be 66 and 2/3 yards... rounded up 67 yards.
