Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How many yards do I need

Thu Jul 20, 2006 7:26 pm

I am wanting to make a sand volleyball court 29.6 x 59 ft with the sand 6 inches deep. How many yards of sand do I need?

Approximately 33 loose cubic yards.

59' * 29.6' * 0.5 / 27 = 32.34, rounded up to 33 cubic yards.

If you buy it by weight, you’ll need approximately 47 tons (based on an average weight of 2,850 per yard for clean, damp sand).
