Our rock calculator tool will help you accurately determine the quantity of rock you need for your landscaping project.

## Rock Calculator

Use this simple calculator to estimate how much rock you need for your landscaping project. Enter the total square feet of the area you’re covering, the density of the rock you’re using (in pounds per cubic foot), and the depth (in inches) you want to lay the rock. Click on “Calculate” to get the result.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Input the project size (area in square feet).
- Input the density of the rock (lbs per cubic foot).
- Input the desired depth of rock (in inches).
- Click the “Calculate” button.

### How It Calculates

The calculator works by converting the depth from inches to feet, then multiplying the area (in square feet) by the converted depth to find the volume in cubic feet. This volume is then multiplied by the density of the rock to find the total weight in pounds.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes a uniform spread of rock and consistent density. It does not account for irregularities in shape and compaction which may affect the actual amount needed. Always consider purchasing a little extra material to accommodate for variations and settling.
