Cubic Feet to Yards Calculator
How Many Cubic Feet in a Yard?
Construction aggregate such as topsoil is usually sold in cubic yards. A yard is 3 feet, or 36 inches, and therefore, a cubic yard is 3 x 3 x 3, or 27 cubic feet. If you are trying to figure out how much materials you need to order for your renovation or landscaping project, you can use our cubic feet to cubic yards calculator below. Simply measure the space you want to fill in feet and inches, then enter them below. Please note that materials other than rocks compact, so you may want to consider ordering 30% more than what you actually need.
For a rectangular area, simply measure the length and width in feet, and height in inches.
For a triangular area, measure the base and altitude in feet, and height in inches. Base and altitude are the part of a triangle that is perpendicular to each other.
For a circular area or part of a circular area, measure the radius in feet, and height in inches. Radius is exactly half of the diameter, or half of the width of the circle.
Irregularly Shaped Area
If you have an irregularly shaped area you need to landscape or fill, worry not. Just divide it up into smaller, more manageable areas, and calculate each piece separately using the calculators above. When you are done, simply sum up all the numbers. Don’t worry about getting it 100% accurate, rough estimate would be enough as long as you add a bit more for errors.
