Calculate your dirt quantity
Use the formula below to calculate the number of cubic yards needed for your project 

        PARAGON  BLACK  DIRT
Length (in feet)    X    Width (in feet)    =    Total Square Feet

Total Square Feet    X    Depth (use chart below    =   Cubic Yards

Example:

Area to add dirt:   20 feet  X   35 feet
You would like to add   5 " of dirt

20  X  35  =  700 square feet

700  X  .0154 ( from depth chart for 5") = 10.78  or 11 cubic yards

How much will 1 yard cover?

1 yard @ 1" will cover 322 square feet
1 yard @ 2" will cover 162 square feet
1 yard @ 3" will cover 108 square feet
1 yard @ 4" will cover   81 square feet
1 yard @ 5" will cover   65 square feet
1 yard @ 6" will cover   54 square feet

Depth Chart

1" deep          .0031
2" deep          .0062
3" deep          .0093
4" deep          .0123
5" deep          .0154
6" deep          .0185
7" deep          .0216
8" deep          .0247
9" deep          .0278
10" deep        .0309
11" deep        .0340
12" deep        .0370

If you are filling in a tapered area (side view would be a triangle):  Use largest depth in formula above then divide total in half for yardage needed.
