If it is water it is easy - 1 litre =

**1 kg**, so 1000 litres = 1000kg = 1 tonne.

In this regard, how much does 25 Litres of soil weigh?

So **25 litres would** be 22.5 kg, and you **would** need 45 bags for a tonne.

**weight**of

**20 liters**of compost is approximately 4 kg.

Secondly, how many pounds is a liter of soil?

A denser **soil** will weigh more; and therefore convert to less quarts per **pound**. Based on my research on potting **soil**, each quart weights approximately 0.875 **pounds**; thus, 10 **pounds** means roughly 11.43 quarts. 10 Quarts equals 9.4 **Liters**. There are about 25 and 3/4 dry quarts in a cubic foot.

One cubic yard of topsoil weighs approximately 1,080 **pounds**. The estimate is based on the cubic yard calculation. One cubic foot of topsoil weighs around 40 **pounds**. The exact weight will depend on various conditions.
