At my local nursery, they sell peat moss and topsoil by the yard. How much is in a yard? What’s a yard of peat moss? What’s a yard of topsoil? What’s a yard of gravel or river rock?
Well, a yard is 3 feet wide by 3 feet in depth and 3 feet in height. It’s a cubic yard and that’s how a lot of building material is sold. So when you go to like a nursery and you’re just gonna buy some gravel or some topsoil don’t want to know how many yards you need. In a yard is a cubic yard.
