Hi Everyone,

So happy to have found this forum!  I just started my square foot garden and need help trying to figure out how many cu ft a bag of composted manure that weighs 30 lbs is.  I can't seem to find an answer when I google it.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much Very Happy

Hi, Kulakat, and welcome to the forum! In general, a 40 pound bag of compost is considered to be .75 cu ft.   At that rate, a 30 pound bag would be 3/4 of .75 cu ft, or .56 cu ft.  Fortunately, many of the bags of compost list both the weight and volume, but those that don't leave us estimating the equivalent.
