### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator performs the following computations:

**Total Area:**Multiplying the length by the width of the area.**Number of Pavers:**Dividing the total area by the area covered by a single paver plus any spacing, then rounding up to the nearest whole number.**Volume of Sand and Gravel:**Multiplying the total area by the respective depths.**Total Paver Volume:**Multiplying the number of pavers by the volume of a single paver.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes that the area is a perfect rectangle and that all pavers are of uniform size and spacing. Be sure to purchase extra material to cover any waste or irregularities.
