Calculate the amount of pea gravel needed for your project with this easy-to-use tool.

## How to Use the Pea Gravel Calculator

Follow these simple steps to calculate the amount of pea gravel you need:

- 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. - The result will display the volume of pea gravel you need in cubic yards.

## How the Calculator Works

The calculator works by converting the dimensions of the area (length, width, and depth) into cubic feet. It then converts cubic feet into cubic yards since gravel is usually sold by the cubic yard.

The calculation steps are as follows:

- Convert depth from inches to feet by dividing by 12.
- Calculate volume in cubic feet:
`length × width × depthInFeet`

. - Convert volume to cubic yards by dividing cubic feet by 27.

## Limitations of the Calculator

Please keep in mind the following limitations:

- The calculator assumes all measurements are entered accurately and does not account for any material wastage or compaction.
- Ensure your measurements are in feet and inches as specified.
- The results are an estimate and actual material needed may vary based on site conditions and installation practices.
