Quantity Calculator

If you are not sure how much rock, sand or bark you need to order, please use these cubic yard calculators to help you figure that out. Enter the dimensions of the area you want to cover in feet, and then enter the depth that you would like to cover that area in inches. Then click the calculate button to calculate the number of cubic yards you will need.

For bark or mulch, a nice thick depth would be 3 to 4 inches. If you want to cover an area with gravel, 1 to 2 inches should be sufficient depending on the size of the gravel. If you are using 3/4" inch gravel or larger figure on at least 2 inches in depth to get good coverage.

If you want to haul these materials in your own truck, you need to know the weight per ton and the capacity of your truck. As a general rule of thumb, small trucks (1/2 ton) can haul a half yard of gravels and soil or a yard of bark. Large pick-up trucks (3/4 and 1 ton) can haul one yard of heavy material or a couple of yards of bark. Or, we can deliver to your site.
