Calculating Cubic Yards
To find cubic yards, first make sure all your measurements are in feet. If depth or any other measurement is in inches, divide that number by 12 to convert it to feet. Next, multiply length, width, and height, then divide that number by 27.
(Length x Width x Height) ÷ 27 = Cubic Yards
Calculating By Material Size
The size of the aggregate material affects how much you’ll need to order. Use the conversion factors below to make sure you have the right amount to finish the job.
Cubic Yards x 1.5 = Tons of Material Needed
Coarse materials (Gravel or Limestone)
Cubic Yards x 1.65 = Tons of Material Needed
Cubic Yards x 1.75 = Tons of Material Needed
