Sod Installation Sonora CA

To figure out how much compost you will need before laying sod, you will need to measure the length and width of your space. The height will be 1 inch (or .0833 feet) because that is how much compost you want on top. Once you have your measurements, click here for a cubic foot calculator

When you enter your measurements into this calculator, it will tell you the cubic footage (ft3) and also the amount in yards (yd3) needed. Our compost is $45 per yard

Or, you can calculate it by hand. Here are a few examples:

200 square feet

200 x .0833 = 16.66 cubic feet

  • There are 27 cubic feet in a yard.

  • 16.666 ÷ 27 = 

.61 yards needed

500 square feet

500 x .0833 = 41.65 cubic feet

  • There are 27 cubic feet in a yard.

  • 41.65 ÷ 27 = 

1.54 yards needed

1,000 square feet

1,000 x .0833 = 83.3 cubic feet

  • There are 27 cubic feet in a yard.

  • 83.3 ÷ 27 = 

3.09 yards needed
