  Estimated Cubic Yards Required:  

• Formula for calculating how many cubic yards you will need:

Step 1:  lenght ___ft. x width___ft. =___sq ft.
Step 2:  ___sq ft. x ___inches thick =___ 324=___cy

OR

• One (1) Cubic Yard (3'W x 3'H x 3'L) will cover the follwoing area:

  1" Deep covers  324 sq. ft.   7" Deep covers  47 sq. ft.  
  2" Deep covers  162 sq. ft.   8" Deep covers  41 sq. ft.  
  3" Deep covers  108 sq. ft.   9" Deep covers  36 sq. ft.  
  3" Deep covers    81 sq. ft. 10" Deep covers  33 sq. ft.  
  5" Deep covers    65 sq. ft. 11" Deep covers  36 sq. ft.  
  6" Deep covers    54 sq. ft. 12" Deep covers  27 sq. ft.  

OR

• Area of a Circle

3-½ (3.14) x radius squared (radius x radius)

Example 12' x 12' x 3.14 = 452.16 Sq. Ft.

  3 Ft. Circle...........  7.06  Sq. Ft.
  5 Ft. Circle........... 19.62 Sq. Ft.
  6 Ft. Circle........... 28.26 Sq. Ft.
