yards/cubic yards

Does a yard and a cubic yard mean the same? If not how many yards does it take to make 1 cubic yard?

If you order 10 yards of concrete from a plant, everyone will know you’re talking about 10 cubic yards.

Although not technically correct, as long as the material is bought or sold in cubic yards, it's usually accepted practice to denote cubic yards as yards.
