My house came with a raised garden. I didn’t do anything with it last year, but I want to plant a rose garden there. Either due to settling or aesthetic differences, the ground level in the garden is lower than I like, so I’m adding 8 inches of topsoil. The garden is 10’x12’. This means 80 cubic feet of dirt, or nearly 3 cubic yards. When I went to buy this, I found that one cubic yard of soil is 60 bags of soil, that weigh 40 lbs each(one pallet’s worth).
That means I need 3.6 tons of soil. :eek:
They delivered it this morning. I managed to move nearly one whole pallet from the driveway to the back yard - at least 50 bags. Thus one ton!
I am so not looking forward to tomorrow.
