This tool quickly calculates the amount of gravel you need for your project, saving you time and effort.

## Gravel Yardage Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the amount of gravel needed for your landscaping project. Follow these steps:

- Enter the length of the area in feet.
- Enter the width of the area in feet.
- Enter the desired depth of gravel in inches.
- Enter the gravel density. The default value is 1.4 tons per cubic yard, which is a standard average for gravel.
- Click “Calculate” to see the total amount of gravel needed in tons.

### How It Works

The calculator multiplies the length, width, and depth (converted to feet) to find the volume in cubic feet. This volume is then converted to cubic yards by dividing by 27, since one cubic yard equals 27 cubic feet. Finally, the cubic yards are multiplied by the density of the gravel to provide the total weight in tons.

### Limitations

Please note:

- This calculator assumes uniform depth and coverage.
- Real-world conditions such as uneven ground and compacting of gravel are not accounted for.
- The density of gravel can vary, so it’s best to verify with your supplier for the most accurate figure.
