Calculating Bed or Lawn Size:

Area
Square Feet = Length of Area (x) Width of Area


Example:
  A 5 foot wide bed that’s 20 feet long

Length (5′) x Width (20′) = 100 square feet


Example: A 100 foot wide lawn that’s 50 feet long

Length (100′) x Width (50′) = 5,000 square feet


Calculating Soil or Material Coverage or Requirements:

Area Cubic

Footage = Length of Area (x) Width of Area (x) Height of
Area

Example:
How much soil do I need to raise or elevate a  10′
x 10′ square foot area by 3″

Length (10′) x Width (10′) x Height (.25′) = 25 cubic
ft.

Answer is just a little under 1 cubic yard of soil which
is 27 cubic ft. or 
25 (1 cubic ft.) bags of bagged topsoil

Example:
I want to top dress an 20′ x 100′ area (2,000 square
ft.) area with 1″ of soil.


How much soil do I need?

Width (20′) x Length (100′) x (.083′) = 166 cubic ft. of
soil
* Note – .083′ was derived from dividing inches 1″ x 12″
(1 ft.) = .083′


Answer: 166 cubic ft. of soil or (166 cubic ft.
÷
27 cub.ft.) =
6.15 cubic yards soil
