One cubic yard of topsoil generally weighs about one ton (2000 pounds). Topsoil’s weight can vary greatly due to moisture content. In the dryness of the summer, the weight of a cubic yard of soil can drop down to around 1700 pounds, while in the spring when soil is damper, one cubic yard may weigh well over one ton.
Yes. We will load almost anything! We load hundreds of pick-ups every year that are of every size and kind. Important tip is to make sure your tires are properly inflated before arriving.
Most 1/2 ton pickups, which include F150’s and 1500’s, can safely haul about 1 cubic yard. Because 1 cubic yard weighs about a ton, that is their upper limit. 3/4 and 1 ton pick-up trucks tend to haul as much as they can hold, which can be up to 2 cubic yards. Smaller pickup trucks like a 1/4 ton truck vary on their weight capacities.
We will try to dump it where you want it, but because dump trucks are large, they are limited to where they can dump. We will try and put it on or near the driveway, but remember that all deliveries made within the curb line are at the homeowner’s risk.
No one knows for sure. Any time you drive a heavier vehicle onto a driveway, there is a risk of cracking the driveway. A good rule of thumb is that if the truck is fully loaded, then there is a real risk of the driveway cracking. A smaller load decreases the risk substantially.
We estimate that mulch tends to weigh around 750 pounds per cubic yard. Mulch is similar to topsoil in that moisture content can effect its weight greatly.
Topsoil is the upper layer of the Earth’s crust, usually the top 2 to 8 inches. It has the highest concentration of microorganisms and organic matter and is where most of the soil’s biological activity occurs. Plants generally sink their roots into and obtain most of their nutrients from this rich layer.
