This tool calculates the amount of gravel you need for laying a concrete slab.

## How to Use the Gravel Under Concrete Slab Calculator

This calculator determines the amount of gravel required for laying a concrete slab. Simply input the length and width of the slab area in feet, the slab’s thickness in inches, and the intended depth of the gravel layer in inches, and click “Calculate.”

### How the Calculator Works

The calculator first converts the slab thickness and gravel depth from inches to feet. It then calculates the volume of gravel needed by multiplying the length, width, and gravel depth (in feet). Finally, it converts this volume from cubic feet to cubic yards, as gravel is often sold by the cubic yard. The result is displayed in the “Result” field.

### Limitations

Please ensure all input values are positive numbers. The calculator does not account for irregularly shaped areas, slopes, or compaction factors of the gravel. It assumes a consistent gravel depth over the entire area.
