## How do I calculate how much stone I need to fill a hole?

In the construction world, most materials are measured in cubic yards. Multiply the length (L), in feet, by the width (W), in feet, by the height (H), in feet, and divide by 27. This will tell you how many cubic yards of crushed stone you need.

## How do I calculate how much gravel I need?

Length in feet x Width in feet x Depth in feet (inches divided by 12). Take the total and divide by 21.6 (the amount of cubic feet in a ton). The final figure will be the estimated amount of tons required.

**How do I calculate how much rock I need?**

How much landscaping rock do I need?

- Calculating Rock Needs.
- L × W = Square footage of coverage area.
- Square feet of coverage area ÷ coverage area per 1 ton = tons of rock needed.

**How do I calculate how much filling I need?**

Length in feet x Width in feet x Depth in feet (inches divided by 12). Take the total and divide by 27 (the amount of cubic feet in a yard). The final figure will be the estimated amount of cubic yards required.

### How much does a ton of crush and run cost?

Crush and Run Prices. Crush and run gravel costs $24 to $34 per ton, about $50 per cubic yard, or $0.50 to $2.00 per square foot, which is one of the cheapest materials. This mixture combines limestone, trap rock, granite, crushed rock, sand, and stone dust.

### How much is a ton of stone cost?

Landscape Stone Pricing by Type

Type of Stone | Cost per Ton (Materials Only) |
---|---|

Stone Dust | $30 – $145 |

Rock Mulch | $45 – $280 |

Crushed Shells | $50 – $85 |

Riprap | $60 – $85 |

**How much does a dump truck load of gravel cost?**

The cost of gravel ranges from $10 to $50 per ton, $15 to $75 per yard, $1 to $3 per square foot, or $1,350 per truck load depending on the rock type, volume, and travel distance.

**How much area does a ton of rock cover?**

Coverage Chart | ||
---|---|---|

One Ton of Rock Covers: | One Cubic Yard of Soil or Wood Mulch Covers: | |

240 square feet | 1” deep | 300 square feet |

120 square feet | 2” deep | 150 square feet |

80 square feet | 3” deep | 100 square feet |

#### How much does a ton of rock cost?

Landscape Rock Pricing by Type

Rock Type | Price |
---|---|

River | $100 – $800 per ton $0.05 – $0.35 per pound |

Lava | $75 per ton $75 – $110 per cubic yard $7 per bag |

Decorative | $40 – $500 per ton |

Large Boulders | $100 – $600 per ton |

#### How is cut and fill volume calculated?

The volume between each pair of sections is estimated by multiplying the average cut or fill area of the two sections by the distance between them. Once these volumes have been calculated for each pair of sections the total cut and fill volumes are obtained by adding them all together.

**How many yards does it take to fill a hole?**

For this example, you would multiply 3.142 by the square of 30 by 30 to obtain the volume. This yields 3.142 times 900 inches times 30 inches, or 84,834 cubic inches. Convert 84,834 cubic inches to cubic yards by dividing by 46,656 cubic inches. It will require 1.82 cubic yards of dirt to fill in the hole.

**How to calculate the depth of a gravel pit?**

When using our calculator you need to measure the following: 1 Width of the site in feet 2 Length of the site in feet 3 Know the desired depth of the gravel in inches

## How big of an area does a bag of stone cover?

Consider a ½ cubic foot bag of stone or soil weighs about 50 lbs and will cover 2 square feet at 3″ deep. A bag of hardwood or cedar bark contains about 1 cubic foot of material, enough to cover about 4 square feet at 3″ deep. If you have large areas you probably need bulk.

## How to calculate the depth of dirt fill?

(You must estimate if the area is oblong.) Enter the width, length, and thickness (how deep you want the cover) of your rectangular area, or enter the diameter and depth (of the cover) of your circular area, click on whether you are measuring each designation in feet or inches (they do not all have to be the same), then click Calculate.

**How can I find out how much stone I Need?**

Otherwise, simply type your dimensions of the stone into the calculator. Our bulk material calculator is a powerful tool that will help you calculate the volume of stone required. In addition, if you know the density of the stone and cost per unit mass/volume, then you can also calculate the total cost.
