How Do I Calculate How Much
Material is needed?
Landscape material is often measured in
cubic yards. To find the number of cubic yards needed for your project follow the following steps for the area you want to fill or cover:
Measure the length (feet)
Measure the width (feet)
Measure the depth (feet)
Multiply length x width x depth
Divide the total above by 27
Example: You want to make a crushed stone sidewalk that is 50 feet long by 4 feet wide and 6 inches deep.
Multiply 50 x 4 x .5 (1/2 foot) = 100
Divide 100 by 27 = 3.7 cubic yards
