Every time we give a quote to a customer for a standard or custom raised garden bed, we always tell them how many cubic yards of topsoil they will need to fill the beds. Since we always used topsoil / dirt calculators on sites like Home Depot or elsewhere, we decided to make our own. Hopefully this topsoil calculator helps you out, whether or not we are the ones building your beds!
Obviously, you can use the topsoil calculator below to figure out the cubic feet and yards (as well as an estimate on how many bags for smaller jobs) are needed for any project requiring filling. Maybe you’re filling a planter next to your rain barrel? Maybe you’re filling in a low point in the yard or in an existing landscape bed. Either way, this topsoil calculator will help.
