  • 5. For new home sodded lawn, calculate 3-5" depth.
  • 6. For raised planting, calculate 12-18" depth.
  • 7. To calculate odd or complex shapes, split the area into combinations of rectangles, triangles and/or circles. Drawing the site on graph paper is recommended.

Calculate Cubic Yards for a Rectangular Area


Example: 12' length x 14' width x 4" depth
= 2.07 cubic yards
Formula: (Length in feet x Width in feet x Depth in feet) / 27
Calculate Cubic Yards for a Circular Area


Example: 12' radius x 6" depth
= 8.38 cubic yards
Formula: ( 3.1416 x (Radius x Radius) x Depth in feet ) / 27
