This tool helps you calculate the amount of stones needed for your driveway project quickly and accurately.

## How to Use the Driveway Stone Calculator

To calculate the amount of stone needed for your driveway, follow these steps:

- Enter the length of the driveway in feet.
- Enter the width of the driveway in feet.
- Enter the depth of the stone layer in inches.
- Enter the density of the stone in pounds per cubic foot (lbs/cu ft).
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

## How It Works

The calculator uses the following formula to determine the amount of stone needed:

**Stone Required (tons) = (Length (ft) * Width (ft) * Depth (in) / 12) * (Density (lbs/cu ft) / 2000)**

**Explanation:**

- The length, width, and depth provide the volume of the driveway in cubic feet.
- The depth is divided by 12 to convert it from inches to feet.
- The density is divided by 2000 to convert pounds to tons.

## Limitations

Please note the following limitations:

- This calculator assumes uniform dimensions and depth.
- Irregular driveways or varying depths may require additional computations.
