Square Feet To Cubic Yard Calculator – Accurate Volume Conversion

This tool will convert square feet to cubic yards for you.

Square Feet to Cubic Yard Calculator

This calculator helps you convert square feet (with a given depth) to cubic yards. This is particularly useful for determining the amount of material needed for projects such as concrete, gravel, landscape material, and soil.

How to Use:

  1. Enter the length of the area in feet.
  2. Enter the width of the area in feet.
  3. Enter the depth of the area in feet.
  4. Click the ‘Calculate’ button to get the result.

How It Works:

The calculator multiplies the length, width, and depth to get the volume in cubic feet. It then divides the result by 27 to convert the volume into cubic yards (since there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard).


This calculator assumes that your measurements are in feet. Ensure that your input values are accurate to get the correct result. If any input is invalid or left empty, the calculator will display “Invalid input”.
