The easiest way to convert cubic feet into square yards would be to first of all to convert the cubic feet into square feet. Square feet are calculated by only taking the flat surface area into account. That's a two-dimensional measurement. Cubic feet and yards are calculated using length, width and depth (or height). This adds the third dimension and makes it a measure of volume.

Converting cubic feet to square feet is possible as long as you know the proper height measurement used. Cubic feet can also be converted into cubic inches and cubic yards
Write down the number in cubic feet divided by the height. If the height number is in inches divide it by 12 before you write it down in the equation. This will give you the measurement in feet. The equation should look like this: Cubic feet/height in feet = square feet.
Divide the cubic feet by the height in feet to get the measurement for the square feet. Multiply the cubic feet by 1,728 to get the number of cubic inches. The equation will look like this: Cubic feet x 1728= cubic inches. Divide the cubic feet by 27 to get cubic yards. The equation is: Cubic feet/27 = cubic yards.
There are nine square feet in a square yard so if you then divide your amount of square feet by nine, you will have your answer. Websites such as ‘onlineconversion.com’ can help you with your conversions if you are unsure. You simply type in the amount you begin with and click which type of measurement it is and then click what you would like it to be converted into.

You will need 87.12 bags. But, when working with concrete is always safe to order 10% more just to be safe. Because sometimes the subgrade might be low.

For one thing, you didn't mention yards in the problem.  Maybe you meant to say that rock is sold by the cubic yard.  In the bulk materials business they just say "yard" when they are talking about cubic yards.

It would depend on how deep you want the rock to be. You would multiply the area times the depth to get the volume. For example, if you want the rock to be 3 inches deep (3 in = 1/4 foot), then  52.5 ft2 times 1/4 ft equals  13.125 ft3. To find how much this is in cubic yards, we would divide by 27 because there are 27 ft3in a yd3.  (3 x 3 x 3 = 27).  So, 13.125 divided by 27 equals 0.49 yd3,  about half a "yard".

Cubic ft / 27 = cubic yards
Cubic yards / height (in yards) = square yards

What you need to know is how thick is the rock you want to put on the flower bed. Let"s say the rock is 2 inches thick. What you do, you convert the inches into tenths 2 divided by 12 which equals to 0.16. So, you multiply the 52.5 by 0.16 which equals to 8.4 cubic feet

You cannot convert cubic feet into square yards unless you know how deep you want the rock layer to be.
