This soil calculator tool will help you determine the amount of soil you need for your garden project.

### How to Use the Soil Calculator:

This soil calculator helps you determine the amount of soil you need for your project in cubic yards. Enter the length, width, and depth of the area you need to cover, and then click “Calculate” to get your result in cubic yards.

### How It Works:

The calculator takes the length and width inputs in feet and the depth input in inches. It calculates the volume in cubic feet by multiplying the length, width, and a converted depth from inches to feet. The result is then converted to cubic yards (since 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet).

### Limitations:

- The calculator assumes all measurements are of a rectangular area. Non-rectangular areas may need additional adjustments.
- It does not account for any compaction of the soil.
- Always round up the result to ensure you have enough soil.
