Herein, how many yards is a load of dirt?
A standard sized dump truck is always recommended for your project. It can carry about 10 to 14 cubic yards of dirt per truckload. For instance, if you require 45 cubic yards of dirt, you need simply 4 truckloads. Many commercial dump trucks have the feature to carry two different materials all at once.
Subsequently, question is, what does 20 yards of dirt look like? A cubic yard is a dirt pile 3 feet wide, 3 feet long and 3 feet tall, so 20 cubic yards is a pile 15 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 3 feet tall. A cubic yard of dirt covers a 10-foot-by-10-foot area with 3 inches of dirt.
Considering this, how much is 10 cubic yards of dirt?
|Material||Cost per Cubic Yard||Delivery|
|Dirt||$5-$15||$150 flat rate for 10-13 cubic yards|
|Mulch||$15-$65||$150 flat rate for 10-13 cubic yards|
|Rock||$20-$120||$20-$120 per cubic yard|
