This tool will help you quickly calculate how many cubic yards of gravel you need for your project.

## How to Use the Gravel Cubic Yard Calculator

To use this calculator, please follow these steps:

- Enter the
**length**of the area in feet. - Enter the
**width**of the area in feet. - Enter the
**depth**of the area in inches. - Click the
**Calculate**button to see the result.

### How It Calculates the Results

This calculator determines the volume of gravel required in cubic yards by using the following formula:

**(Length in feet) × (Width in feet) × (Depth in feet) / 27**

The depth is first converted from inches to feet by dividing by 12. The total volume in cubic feet is then divided by 27 to convert it into cubic yards.

### Limitations

- This calculator assumes all measurements are accurate and does not account for irregular areas or slopes.
- Ensure that all entries are numerical, as non-numerical inputs will result in an error alert.
