## How do I calculate dirt to fill a hole?

Length in feet x Width in feet x Depth in feet (inches divided by 12). Take the total and divide by 27 (the amount of cubic feet in a yard). The final figure will be the estimated amount of cubic yards required.

### How do you calculate volume of dirt?

Calculate the volume by multiplying the measured length and width of the space together, then multiply the result by the height of the room. A 7-foot ceiling gives the room 300 * 7 feet or 2,100 cubic feet. Divide the area by 27 to find the volume of the dirt in cubic yards (because 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet).

**How do I work out how much soil I need?**

How much soil do I need?

- Determine the length and width of the area you want to cover with soil.
- Calculate the area, multiplying the length by width.
- Establish the depth – thickness of the topsoil layer.
- Multiply the area and dirt layer thickness to obtain its volume: 56 * 0.5 = 28 yd² .

**How much does 1 cubic yard of dirt weigh?**

Soil: Weighs about 2,200 pounds per cubic yard, depending on the moisture content. Sand, Gravel, Stone: Can tip the scales at upwards of 3,000 pounds per cubic yard.

## How do I work out how much soil I need for a garden bed?

The area of a square or rectangular garden is easy to calculate. Simply multiply the length by the width by the depth or use our simple volume calculator. Circular areas are also easy to calculate. Simply multiply 3.1415 (π) by the radius, by the radius again, by the depth or use our simple volume calculator.

### How many cubic feet does it take to fill a hole?

The radius is half the width of the hole. Unless you are doing a monster hole it might be easiest to do this all in inches. If your hole is 36” deep and 10” wide, the calculation is 3.14 x 5 x 5 x 36 ÷ 1728. This gives you 1.6 cubic feet.

**How do you measure the diameter of a hole?**

So, the calculation of a hole size diameter differed for non-plated through holes and plated through holes. For a non-plated through-hole, the calculation is the sum of the finished hole size and +0.00mm/0mil. But, plated through-hole, on the other hand, is the sum of the finished hole size and +0.10mm/4mil.

**How do you level uneven ground by hand?**

Rake the area to further level the ground. Move the rake forward and backwards over the land, spreading the soil evenly across the area of the plot. Use the teeth of the rake to break up any clumps that remain. Use the back of the rake to level areas that are particularly uneven.

## Is there a calculator for fill dirt?

Our fill calculator can help you figure out how much fill dirt you will need for your construction project. This cubic yard calculator works with top soil, mulch, gravel, dirt fill, clean fill, fill dirt.

### How many cubic yards of dirt to fill an inch?

Your result tells you how many cubic yards will fill one inch of depth. Applying that formula to the example above using 40 square feet, you would need .54 cubic yards: To give you a sense of volume, there are 27 cubic feet in one cubic yard (3′ x 3′ x 3′).

**What do you need to know about filling a hole with dirt?**

Measure the length and width, in feet, of the area where you want to use fill. When you are working on an area that is circular, measure the diameter. For a series of circular shapes, measure the diameter of each one. Your dirt contractor can help you with those measurements.

**How does the cubic yard fill calculator work?**

This cubic yard calculator works with top soil, mulch, gravel, dirt fill, clean fill, fill dirt. This calculator is designed to give an approximate volume quantity for fill, gravel, rock or mulch to fill or cover a given area, either generally rectangular or generally round.
