# How do you calculate cubic yards for landscaping?

## How do you calculate cubic yards for landscaping?

Multiply the three dimensions together to find the number of cubic feet (0.5 feet x 12 feet x 12 = 72 cubic feet) Divide the cubic feet by the number of cubic feet in a cubic yard (27) to find the number of cubic yards (72 ÷ 27 = 2.67 cubic yards).

## How many cubic yards are in an acre?

Acre-foot to Cubic Yard Conversion Table

Acre-foot [ac*ft] | Cubic Yard [yd^3] |
---|---|

1 ac*ft | 1613.3333333333 yd^3 |

2 ac*ft | 3226.6666666667 yd^3 |

3 ac*ft | 4840 yd^3 |

5 ac*ft | 8066.6666666667 yd^3 |

**How do you calculate landscaping volume?**

Multiply the width times the length times the height in feet (W × L × H) to get the volume in cubic feet. Finally, convert the cubic feet measurement to cubic yards by dividing the result by 27, since cubic yards are equal to cubic feet ÷ 27.

**How do you calculate landscaping rocks?**

The landscape rock formula is as follows:

- (Length x width x depth) / 27.
- Sand 1.10 – 1.25 tons (2,200 – 2,500 lb.)
- Landscape Gravels 1.20 – 1.35 tons (2,400 – 2,700 lb.)
- Washed Gravel 1.35 tons (2,700 lb.)
- Washed Limestone 1.20 tons (2,400 lb.)
- Limestone Base 1.35 tons (2,700 lb.)

### How do you calculate landscaping material?

Rectangle

- Measure Length and Width (in feet)
- Length x Width = square feet.
- Determine desired depth of material (see recommended depths and chart below)
- Square feet divided by sq.
- Example: A rectangular area 16 feet long by 10 feet wide and you want 4 inches deep of stone.
- Calculations:
- 16 x 10 = 160 square feet.

### How do I calculate landscaping gravel?

Multiply the area and depth of the excavation to obtain its volume in cubic yards: 18 * 2 = 36 yd³ . The volume of gravel required is equal to the volume of excavation.

**How many cubic yards are in 2 acres?**

Acre feet to Cubic yards

1 Acre feet = 1613.33 Cubic yards | 10 Acre feet = 16133.34 Cubic yards |
---|---|

2 Acre feet = 3226.67 Cubic yards | 20 Acre feet = 32266.68 Cubic yards |

3 Acre feet = 4840 Cubic yards | 30 Acre feet = 48400.02 Cubic yards |

4 Acre feet = 6453.34 Cubic yards | 40 Acre feet = 64533.36 Cubic yards |

**How do you calculate landscaping area?**

Add up the square footage of each shape for total square footage. If a shape with no landscaping (such as a pool) is inside a larger shape (such as a square of lawn), calculate the square footage of the larger shape and subtract the square footage of the smaller shape.

## How do I calculate how much rock I need?

How much landscaping rock do I need?

- Calculating Rock Needs.
- L × W = Square footage of coverage area.
- Square feet of coverage area ÷ coverage area per 1 ton = tons of rock needed.

## How deep should rock be for landscaping?

The suggested depth of coverage varies according to the size of the individual stones. If the stone size is 1/2-inch or less, the suggested depth is 2-inches. Stones that are 3/4-inch to 1-inch should have a depth of about 3-inches. Stones that are 1-inch or larger should have a depth of 4-inches.
