Use this tool to quickly calculate the area of an easement on your property.

## Easement Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the cost of materials required for an easement. Simply enter the dimensions of the area and the cost per cubic yard to get a total estimate. Follow the steps below to use this calculator effectively.

### How to Use the Easement Calculator

- Enter the
**Length**of the area in feet. - Enter the
**Width**of the area in feet. - Enter the
**Depth**of the area in feet. - Enter the
**Price per cubic yard**of the material in US dollars. - Press the
**Calculate**button to get the total cost.

### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator multiplies the length, width, and depth to get the volume in cubic feet. It then converts this volume into cubic yards by dividing by 27, since there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. Finally, the calculator multiplies the number of cubic yards by the price per cubic yard to get the total cost.

### Limitations

- This calculator assumes perfectly rectangular dimensions for simplicity. Real-world irregularities may affect actual material requirements.
- The cost estimate is only for the material and does not include labor, transport, or other potential costs.
- All values entered must be positive. Negative or zero values will not be processed.
