This tool calculates how much dirt you need for your yard projects.

## How to Use the Yard Calculator

To use this yard calculator, please follow these steps:

- 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 to get the result.

## How it Calculates

The yard calculator calculates the volume of dirt needed as follows:

- First, it converts the depth from inches to feet by dividing the depth value by 12.
- Next, it calculates the cubic feet by multiplying the length, width, and depth (in feet).
- Finally, it converts the cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing the cubic feet by 27 (since 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet).

## Limitations

Please note the following limitations of this yard calculator:

- The calculator assumes a regular rectangular area. If your area has an irregular shape, the result might not be accurate.
- This tool only calculates volume and does not account for factors like soil compaction or moisture content.
