    What is the volume of this shape?

    I am filling wedge like hole in my lawn and need to figure out how much dirt I need. However the shape is irregular (Not a wedge, not a pyramid etc). Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    About 1.7 cubic metre

    (the required volume is the volume of the wedge with the same plan area and depth minus the volume of the skew square based pyramid that is complementary to the required shape in the wedge)
