Is this the amount of sand I need?Moderator: convertme.com 

To do it in English engineering units, so that shill feels justified:sweets98 wrote:We have a sandbox that we would like to sand for this weekend. I was trying to get an idea of how much sand we would need so we have enough bags. I have seen bags of play sand in both 50 and 60 lbs bags at Lowe's and WalMart. The sand box is 4'X4'X6". I used a sand calculator and got .4 tons. Then I found this website and tried to convert tons to pounds...and came up with a total of 13 bags if I bought the 60lbs ones. Is that way off? Seems like a lot to me but I have problems guessing with this type of thing. Thanks!
