Calculate How Much Dirt or Gravel You Need for Your Project

Person measuring the groundAre you starting your next project and asking yourself, how much dirt or gravel do you need?

When Gravel or Dirt suppliers ask how many yards you need they are talking about a cubic yard. A cubic yard is a measurement that is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet and measures volume, where as a ton, measures weight. To put this in perspective, a yard of topsoil usually weighs about 1,800 pounds and a yard of gravel usually weighs about 2,200 pounds.  

How Much Does A Cubic Yard Cover?

At a depth of 3 inches, a cubic yard of material can be spread over a 10×10 area (100 square feet). It’s always good to understand how something is done even if you are going use calculators.  Calculations can get tougher for round areas so we have created online calculators for rectangle areas and round areas.
