Use this gravel calculator to easily estimate the amount of gravel you need in tons for your project.

## Gravel Calculator

This gravel calculator determines the amount of gravel you need in tons to cover a specific area.

### How to Use

- Enter the length of the area in feet.
- Enter the width of the area in feet.
- Enter the depth of the gravel in inches.
- Enter the density of the gravel (default is set to 120 lb/ft³).
- Click “Calculate” to get the result in tons.

### How It Works

The calculator uses the following steps to compute the gravel needed:

- Calculates the volume in cubic feet.
- Multiplies the volume by the density to get the weight in pounds.
- Converts the weight from pounds to tons (1 ton = 2000 pounds).

### Limitations

Please note this calculator assumes the density you enter is accurate. Different types of gravel have different densities, so ensure you use the correct density for your specific type of gravel. Also, this calculator does not account for the unevenness of the distribution of gravel.
