    lenth x width first, then x amount of inches deep you want (ex. 2 inches)

    this is sq ft. then divide by 324 the # of sq. f t. in a yd. will give yd amt.

        57 feet * 30 feet * (inches deep / 12) feet = cubic feet
        cubic feet / 27 = cubic yards

            5 cubic yards. The formulas in post 4 give 4 cubic yards, but the dirt is delivered loose and will compact. Allow an extra 25%.
