Total tons*: |
(* The tons figure only works for sand and rock products. Any products containing soil, woodchips, peat, etc. would have varying weights and would be ordered by the cubic yard. )
How to figure rectangle manually:
- Length x Width = Square Feet
- Square Feet ÷ “X” = Cubic Yards (to find “X,” match depth with number in table below)
- To convert Cubic Yards to Tons*: Cubic Yards x 1.4 = Tons
- To convert Tons to Cubic Yards*: Tons ÷ 1.4 = Cubic Yards
* | 1.4 is a rule of thumb that will work for most sand and gravel products (1 yard = 2,800#). Some products such as soils and mixes may vary due to their different bulk densities (weight per cu. yd). |

Example 1: | 2,000 Square Ft. bunker at 6″ deep
2,000 ÷ 54 = 37 Cubic Yards Bunker Sand 37 x 1.4 = 52 Tons |
Example 2: | To cover cart path 1,200′ x 4′ x 3″ deep
1,200 x 4 = 4,800 square feet 4,800 ÷ 108 = 44.5 cubic yards gravel 44.5 x 1.4 = 63 tons |
