Not mind readers, what a big O?
Google concrete calulator. Volume is volume no mater what the materail is.
It will ask length, width, thickness and figure it out in cubic yards.

well if you place in into a 1' x 1' trench that would be roughly 150 cubic feet. 150 cubic feet/27 cubic feet per cubic yard = 5.56 cubic yards ...... so I'd say 6

of course if you want a larger trench ..... it takes more

Thank you I did a calculation and I had 7. 4 yards but that was converting from tones. But 7 seemed a little high. Thank you very much for your help
