SOIL AND BARK CALCULATOR

Please Note!
This calculator requires a
JavaScript-enabled browser to function properly!

This Soil and Bark Calculator helps you to estimate how many cubic yards you would need to order to cover a specific area to a particular depth.


Soil and Bark Calculator:

To use the Soil and Bark Volume Calculator, simply enter the width, length, and thickness of your area to be covered, click on whether you are measuring the thickness in feet or inches, then click on the Calculate button. The calculator will estimate the number of cubic yards of soil or bark that will be required.

Cubic Yards Required:


Odd Shaped Area?
You could revert to your high school geometry, or you can try this:

1- Make a rough drawing of your area
2- Divide that area into sections. Choose a dividing line that will create something close to a rectangle. Close is good enough.
3- Use the calculator above to  determine the cubic yards required for each section, and then just add them together.

Example 1:

This gives you at least a rough estimate of how much you need to order, without resorting to higher math. 

Just enter the dimensions into the calculator above.  You should be fairly close. The excess from one area should offset the deficit in another.

Example 2:

When you get the results on section 3, cut them in half.  That should give you a fairly accurate result, when you add up the calculator results for section 1, section 2, and half of section 3.
