How To's

How do I figure the amount of product I will need?
Here is the formula that we use to estimate the approximate amount of rock/dirt/mulch you will need:

Length x Width x Depth
divide by 27 = total cubic yards.

2'' deep use .17
3'' deep use .25
4'' deep use .33

Example: For an area 22 feet long
by 3 feet wide and 3 inches deep:
22 x 3 x .25 divided by 27 = .61 cubic yards

Example: For an area 52 feet long
by 6 feet wide and 4 inches deep:
52 x 6 x .33 divided by 27 = 3.81 cubic yards

1 cubic yard at 3'' deep
covers an area 10 x 10 (approx.)
