We are planning on making a small garden this summer. It will be 8feet long, and 4 feet wide.
We plan on have about a 6 inch border around it.
We want the soil to reach the top, it's there a formula to use to let us know how much top soil we'll need to get for the project.

Bacially 8 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 6 inches deep

Thanks for any help

You have 32 square feet so you'll need 0.59 cubic feet of topsoil to fill it 6" deep.
