Re: Build Your Own Raised Beds

Hello! I am the author of the Raised Bed article (14 years ago!). There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so it takes just under 2 cu. yds. to fill a bed. You'll want to keep the soil level about 4" below the top to allow room for whatever irrigation system you use and to prevent soil from spilling over the top when you dig!
