Calculate what you need when you need it

You can use these calculators to determine approximately how many cubic yards of material you will need for your landscape projects.

To use this calculator, simply insert your dimensions in the designated input fields separately.

Please do not add your dimensions together. The yardage calculator will be inaccurate.

To calculate thickness of Softscape material:

The size of your material will determine how thick you should place your material, material is generally installed at a minimum of 1.5 times of the product size.

For example:

Product Size Recommended Installation Thickness 
1/4″ 1″
3/8″ 1″
1/2″ 1″
3/4″ 1.5″
1″ 1.5″
1.5″ 3″
3″ 6″

 

 

 

 

Estimated Weight Per Yard

The chart below will give you a rough estimate of the weight.

Moisture content fluctuates weight of material.

 

Product Weight (lbs./yard)
Bark / Mulch 600
Dirt / Soil 1500
Sand 3000
DG 2700
Aggregate / Rock 2700

 

 

 

Inches to Feet Conversion Chart

1″ = .08 7″ = .58
2″ = .18 8″ = .67
3″ = .25 9″ = .75
4″ = .33 10″ = .83
5″ = .41 11″ = .92
6″ = .50 12″ = 1.0

 
 

These are a quick reference guide.

 

To calculate yardage:

Length x Width x Depth = Cubic Feet

Divide by 27 (27 cubic feet in a yard) = Cubic Yards
