This tool helps you calculate the amount of soil needed for your gardening or landscaping project.

## How to Use the Lowes Soil Calculator:

To use this calculator, simply enter the dimensions of the area you need to cover with soil. Provide the length and width in feet, and the depth in inches. If you know the soil density (usually around 75 lbs per cubic foot), you can enter it as well, or use the default value provided.

## How It Calculates the Results:

The calculator determines the volume of soil needed in cubic feet by multiplying the length, width, and depth (converted to feet). Then, it multiplies this volume by the density to give you the total weight of soil required in pounds.

## Limitations:

This calculator provides an estimate based on the dimensions and density you provide. Actual soil needs may vary based on compaction and other factors. Always consider ordering extra soil to account for these variances.
