How Much Material to Purchase

 

 

Calculate How Much Material Is Needed

 

Rock, Mulch, Topsoil, and Fill can all be calculated according to the following formula.

 

Formula:

 

(Sq. Ft. of Area) x (Depth Multiplier) / (27 Cubic Ft. per Cubic Yard) =

# of Cubic Yards

 

Example:

 

100' x 10' Area (1000 sq. ft.) @ 3 Inches Deep (.25 multiplier) / 27 Cu. Ft. per Yard

 

1000 Sq. Ft. x .25 / 27 = 9.25 Cubic Yards
