This tool calculates the amount of soil you need for your raised garden beds.

## Soil Calculator for Raised Beds

This soil calculator will help you determine the volume of soil needed for a raised bed. You can use this to plan your garden beds accurately and ensure you have enough soil to fill them. Simply input the length, width, and depth of your raised bed to get the total cubic feet of soil required.

### How to Use

- Enter the
**Length**of the raised bed in feet. - Enter the
**Width**of the raised bed in feet. - Enter the
**Depth**of the raised bed in inches. The calculator will automatically convert this to feet for calculations. - Click on the
**Calculate**button. - The result will be displayed in the
**Result (cubic feet)**field.

### How it Calculates

The calculator multiplies the length, width, and depth (converted from inches to feet) to determine the total volume of soil required in cubic feet. The formula used is:

Volume = Length (ft) * Width (ft) * Depth (inches / 12)

### Limitations

This calculator only provides an estimate and does not account for soil compaction, moisture, and other variables that might affect the actual soil volume required. Additionally, the dimensions must be entered accurately and as positive numbers to get a valid result.
