The Q&A Archives: Measurement Conversion

Question: How many pounds of top soil make up a cubic yard of top soil?

Answer: Unfortunately the two measures do not match up since one is weight and the other is volume. If the soil is wet when it is bagged it will weigh more than say a drier fluffier mix in the same bag. If you need a cubic yard of soil, then it will be prohibitively expensive to purchase it by the bag as well.
