This tool helps you easily calculate the amount of gravel needed for your driveway.

## How to Use the Gravel Driveway Calculator

To calculate the amount of gravel required for your driveway:

- Enter the length of the driveway in feet.
- Enter the width of the driveway in feet.
- Enter the depth of the gravel layer in inches.
- Enter the density of the gravel in pounds per cubic foot (default is 100 lbs/ft
^{3}). - Click the “Calculate” button.
- The result will show the amount of gravel needed in tons.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator determines the volume of the driveway in cubic feet, then converts this to cubic yards, and finally calculates the weight in tons based on the density you provided:

- Volume (cubic feet) = Length (feet) × Width (feet) × Depth (inches) / 12
- Volume (cubic yards) = Volume (cubic feet) / 27
- Weight (tons) = Volume (cubic yards) × Density (lbs/cubic ft) / 2000

## Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate based on the values you input. Actual amounts may vary based on factors such as compaction and moisture content of the gravel.
