Use this pea gravel calculator to determine the amount of pea gravel you need for your project.

## How to Use the Pea Gravel Calculator

This calculator is designed to help you estimate the amount of pea gravel needed for a specific area. To use the calculator:

- Enter the length of the area in feet.
- Enter the width of the area in feet.
- Enter the desired depth of pea gravel in inches.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result in cubic yards.

## Explanation of the Calculation

The calculator computes the volume of the area in cubic feet and then converts it to cubic yards (since most gravel suppliers deal in cubic yards). The formula used is:

**Cubic Feet = Length (feet) x Width (feet) x Depth (inches) / 12**

To convert cubic feet to cubic yards, the result is then divided by 27.

## Limitations of the Calculator

The calculator assumes that the area being filled is perfectly rectangular or square. It is also designed for rough estimates and should not be used for precise engineering calculations. Variations in actual installation and depth consistency can affect the true quantity of pea gravel needed.
