How to calculate cubic yards?
The formula: Number of Cubic Yards = Length (in feet) Width (in feet) Depth (in feet) ÷ 27. Simply multiply the three dimensions together to find the number of cubic feet, then divide by 27 to find the number of cubic yards.
Or you can use this handy calculator below!
3/4" and smaller - gravel mixed with sand.
Typically used for un-paved laneways & roads, under structures and asphalt to form a good base, and in concrete mix.
One cubic yard is enough to cover approximately 100 square feet that is 2-3" thick.
Modified B Gravel
Modified B (also known as Screened B) is a good base material consisting of 2" or smaller stone and sand. Generally used as a base material for building roadways, parking areas and driveways.
Rocks ranging in size from approximately 2" - 4". Excellent drainage stone. Typically used in landscaping projects. You can create dry river beds, water features, use around ponds and some put around buildings to aid in weed control along with landscaping fabric.
One cubic yard will cover approximately 70 square feet that is 2-3" thick.
1" Stone with no fines in. Used as drainage stone around drainage tile, weeping tiles and in basements before concrete floor is poured. Good for around pools, and under decks. Not recommended for driveways or walkways, as the stones will shift and travel.
Large chunks of crushed stone (8-10") typically used as a drainage material, ground cover or retaining walls when used inside of gabion baskets.
1/4" Clear Stone
Clear Stone is generally used for drainage, around weeping tiles, window wells, and as a base for poured concrete.
