how many 40lb bags would i need to to fill 5ft. x 3 ft. x 12in ?

Asked by: lamontcrankston
Using the estimate of a 40# bag has a volume of 1 cubic foot. The volume would be 15 cubic feet (5ft x 3ft x 12/12 ft) so we would estimate around 15 bags would be required to fill this volume. Because it is measured by weight rather than volume this quantity is only an estimate and your results may require a little more or a little less than this estimate.

40 lb. Potting Soil is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Definetly NOT Potting Soil This stuff is black clay, it looks and smells like muck dredged out of a lake or pond. This soil (clay) does not drain at all. I would not consider this as top soil either. It may make good adobe blocks however.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changed formula in 2015 Product WAS perfect for growing potted trees, flowers and vegetables, even as a seed starter for several years. This year's batch is not formulated well in regards to ratios. It's 75% sand,25% clay, which makes it behave as a clay soil, according to an ag bureau. It has a lot of wood product and virtually no perlite. This is year's vegetables and flowers are dying and the soil is hard. I hope that the company reformulates this mix to what it used to be. I want a PLAIN potting soil without fertilizer or moisture retainers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Garbage. Absolute Garbage. I usually buy potting soil from ACE and it has done me well, but I just happened to be on Home Depot looking at plants and decided to grab a bag since I was there. When I was spreading the soil into my container I noticed that it was very moist and clumped a lot. There were a few sticks here and there but what I noticed most was the massive amount of rocks. Against my better judgement I decided to just finish the project and see what happens. This soil does not drain at all and has the consistency of clay. My strawberry plants were swimming in water after this morning's rain. I would not purchase this product again nor would I recommend it to anyone. What a waste of time, money and effort. I have attached two photos. One with ACE's potting soil and Earthgro's potting soil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clay-like Trash This is the worst soil. It's basically clay and garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Use! I wish I'd thought to read reviews before I purchased 12cf (6 2cf bags) of this horrible product. I thought I'd save some money and it ended up costing me so much more replacing $200.00 worth of plants, plus time, plus new potting soil. I can't believe this is on the market. So, my bags were basically wood shavings and manure. None of the other stuff that makes the mixture sound alright for potting soil. Maybe they don't mix it up, or I got the bad stuff off the top, or they don't really add in any of the stuff it says it has in it. I will never buy cheap potting soil again and will never buy anything 'Scott's' again because I'm so mad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE! I bought this potting soil and when I opened it I was suprised to find it smelled terrible like manure. It was super wet and had no perilite in it like all other potting mixes I have bought. I planted some flowers with it even though I was hesitant. Less then 48 hours later my flowers were showing signs of being burned. I called The Home Depot and the Earth Gro 1-800 # and they all said it was fine. "It smells like that because it is a natural product." I dont believe them and am going to transplant everything into new name brand soil and will return this product. This is a terrible product. I am sure it is manure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks and feels good. all organic well composted, Dark, and moist when I opened the first bag. lots of well rotted mulch. I saw None of the "clay" the first reviewer mentioned. Got it for a good price. The thickness of the bag left some to be desired as both 1CU FT bags I got from Walmart had 1" plus holes. Just started my first GrowPot#R# so don't know how well the outcome will be but see no reason to doubt that the EArthgro#R# potting soil will be anything but an excellent choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Best used as fill My 4 bags of Earthgro Potting Soil contained shredded plastic that I had to pick out. Fortunately, I was mixing it with top soil, but I would never use this to grow anything besides grass. It's basically top soil with a tiny bit of perlite mixed in, but not enough that I would consider it potting soil. Seems quite irresponsible to me.
