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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for houseplants "right out of the bag"! Label says "for use right out of the bag" and outdoors in a garden that's probably true. I sifted it and was left with 6 cups+ of rocks, sticks and clay balls - 10 qt. bag. (Would NOT want that in my african violet pots!) Label says there's perlite added but darn little that I could see! Seems like a lot of sand and not as much organic matter as I hoped. Was stored inside hardware store so not wet or stinky as some warned. I bought this as a substitute for peat moss, fully intending to add extra perlite & vermiculite. (Miracle-Gro brand potting soil & peat moss have fertilizer added, making feeding plants a guessing game and running a real risk of over-fertilizing.) Will go slow and test this on a few at first...maybe use a majority to repot a fern instead. Also...baking it in the oven to pasteurize just to be overly cautious, perhaps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Earthgro Potting Soil: I purchased two bags from a big name department store. Less than $3 a bag. Upon opening the bag the soil was very heavy and clumped, not loose...Had me concerned but it was all I had so I proceeded with my planting. We've been having a lot of rain this week. This soil does not absorb water. One of the pots I planted contains a begonia and it kept filling with water which I had to pour off a few times. The other pot has vegetables. I took a closer look at both and was surprised to find lots of obvious sand! I'm going to re-pot every plant that's in this soil using a brand that I've never had trouble with. I read another review where their bags contained plastic. I'm surprised to find out that it's a Scotts product. I imagine they would do a better job of checking their products before selling them to the public.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of sand and sticks - doesnt drain - Don't buy I bought this to replant my mint plants in containers. I planted one in left over MiracleGro potting mix and the best plant in a big container with Earthgro. Earthgro I got had abudant fine sand particles and lots of sticks. there is no way it resembled a potting mix. it was hard as cake and had to loosen it and fill up the container, now i see that it is very tight in the container after watering. MiracleGro mint is thriving very well. Earthgro Mint is slowly stunted and I am assured it will die. I have to buy a better potting mix. wish I had read reviews before buying this. Waste of time, money and plant. Don't sell them please. It wastes time more than money. you should know it takes lots of efforts to plant fertilize and await results. To end up with a piece of clump in the end is just disappointing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hope I didn't make a mistake I used Earthgro potting soil for my very first ever container garden. Needless to say I am extremely nervous after reading all of the reviews from this website and from a big box store site. I am in wait and see mode now. I planted tomatoes, carrots, and green beans yesterday, today I will plant lettuce, cabbage, squash, cucumbers and watermelon. I will do all I can to ensure proper growth for my plants and seeds (including talking to them!) I purchased Earthgro because of the price. I wanted a container garden to help offset the cost of fresh produce this summer, and because of the nutritional advantages of "home grown" vegetables. What am I supposed to do if the soil I purchased kills my plants and seeds? I used precious resources to purchase everything I needed for my 50sf garden, and will be unable to replace/redo if the soil fails. I will return with a follow up post once I see how this soil is going to affect my plants. I really, really hope I did not make a mistake. One note I would like to make, is I fill my container 5x10 full to the rim and smoothed out before I planted anything. It has rained and now the soil looks to have "sunk". Is this normal??? Does that mean I have good drainage? Or is my little garden destined for ruin?
