how much soil

serinitygarden(z7 AR)March 2, 2004

If I have a raised bed 4'x8'x12" how much soil and other materials will this hold. Trying to figure the cost of each bed. I have no compost of my own to add so will be purchasing all the materials that goes into bed. Thanks

4x8x1 = 32 cubic feet of material
divide that by 27 to get cubic yards = 1.2 cubic yards
those are the 2 numbers you need to know when buying by bag or by bulk
