How many bags of pea gravel does it take for 1 cubic yard?
Each .5 cubic feet bag of pea gravel will weigh approx. 50lbs.
Each 60 pounds bag of ready mix concrete will make .45 cubic foot of concrete. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. You will need 60 bags of 60 pound premixed concrete… to make 1 cubic yard.
One yard of PEA Gravel weighs approximately 3,000 pounds Clarification: one CUBIC yard weighs approx 3,000 pounds.
1 ton = 2,000 lbs 1 cubic yard = 2400 to 2900 lbs depending on the nature of the material. Dry random size gravel particles will pack or settle together the tightest resulti…ng in the heavier weight. Dry uniform size particles have more air voids resulting in lighter weight. Moist uniform particles that have not been compacted tend to stick together in random patterns resulting in maximum air voids, therefore minimum weight. One cubic yard of compacted dry gravel of random size particles can weigh more than 3000 pounds.
1 cubic yard = 1.3 tons
A cubic yard is 3x3x3= 27 cubic feet so you would need 27/.5 = 54 bags
This depends on the size of gravel, the water content of the gravel, and the material composition of the rock used to make the gravel. Typically 1 cu.yd. of gravel wieghs 30…00 lb.
The weight is 1.3 tonnes
1 (cubic yard) = 46 656 cubic inches If the depth is 2 inches then the area it will cover is 46656/2 square inches = 23,328 square inches. Convert 23,328 square inches to sq…uare yards 23 328 (square inches) = 18 square yards

If you are trying to figure out the 40lb bags of dirt they sell at the store... It takes about 50 of those to equal 1 (cubic) yard of dirt. I just had to do the research on it… too. there are 3 feet in a yard so i figure cubic feet and cubic yard would be the same principle. 1 1/2 bags would seem right.
Round point about 270 Square point about 230
The density of gravel varies depending on its constituents. Gravel is made up of varying size stones and varying sized sand particles together with a certain amount of air and… water. However, the specific density of gravel will always be greater than that of water (1.0) and less than that of concrete (2.4). A regular gravel could have a specific density of say 1.8. The density of water is 0.254 ton / cu. yd so 1 cu yd. of gravel could be 0.254 x 1.8 = 0.457 ton. Approximately.
1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet = 54 half-cubic-foot bags
