Soil Estimates

Peggy has calculated the following:

Bed 1: 6’ x 4’ x 12” Total: 0.889 cubic yds.
Bed 2: 5’ x 5’ x 8” Total: 0.617 cubic yds.
Bed 3: 12’ x 5’ x 8” Total: 1.481 cubic yds.

...which includes an extra 10% to allow for settling. This gives us a grand total of about 3 cubic yards. The soil will be ordered tomorrow, for delivery later in the week.

This coming weekend: Planting! Peggy's friend Karen has offered some seedlings, which Peggy will check out (and pick up) on Saturday.

  1. How did your calulation pan out? Did your 10% account OK for settling? Cheers,karen
