# FORMULAS

Here are some simple formulations to calculate how much product you will need. Or if you prefer, simply contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

## Squares & Rectangles

Area (Square Feet): Length x Width = Square Feet (sq.ft.)
(Example:  6' long x 4' wide = 24 sq.ft.)

Depth (in feet): Inches Deep ÷ 12 = Depth (in feet)
(Example: 3 inches ÷ 12 = .25 feet)

Cubic Feet: Area x Depth(in feet) = Cubic Feet (cu.ft.)
(Example: 24 sq.ft. x .25 feet = 6 cu.ft.)

Tons Needed:  Cubic Feet ÷ 20 = Tons
(Example: 6 cu.ft. ÷ 20 = .3 Tons)

Yards Needed: Cubic Feet  ÷ 27= Yards
(Example: 6 cu.ft. ÷ 27 = .22 Cu. Yds. (Cubic Yards)

## Circles

Area (Square Feet): Diameter x .7854 = Square Feet (sq. ft.)
(Example: 12' across  x .7854 = 113.1 sq.ft.)

Circumference: Diameter x 3.1416. = Linear Feet Around
(Example: 12' across x 3.1416 = 37.7 Linear Feet Around
**Note: Circumference is the running feet around the border of a circle.

Depth (in feet): Inches Deep ÷ 12 = Depth (in feet)
(Example: 3 inches ÷ 12 = .25 feet)

Cubic Feet: Area x Depth(in feet) = Cubic Feet (cu.ft.)
(Example: 24 sq.ft. x .25 feet = 6 cu.ft.)

Tons Needed:  Cubic Feet ÷ 20 = Tons
(Example: 6 cu.ft. ÷ 20 = .3 Tons)

Yards Needed: Cubic Feet  ÷ 27= Yards
(Example: 6 cu.ft. ÷ 27 = .22 Cu. Yds. (Cubic Yards)

## Tidbits

• A ton of most loose stone products cover roughly 80 sq.ft., 3" deep.
• A yard always covers 108 sq.ft., 3" deep.
• Always figure compaction for areas over 6" deep. Compaction for sand and soil is about 15 to 20%. On most products a ton is equal to 75% of a cubic yard.
