The cubic yard calculator is an online measurement to estimate precisely how much material we need to cover or fill a certain area.

We need to insert the input of length, width, and depth in one unit to estimate the required material for mulch, fill, gravel, cement, or containers. We can calculate the cubic yard volume for landscape material, you can enter the US units like the(inches or feet) or the SI unit like (centimeter or meter) to find the cubic yard. It makes a difference how to figure cubic feet? Or how to figure cubic meters?

The other important thing is the cost of the material which is essential to arranging the budget. We can enter the price or the cost of material per cubic feet, per cubic yards, per cubic meters.

When we are entering a value in the cubic yard calculator whether in the US units or in the metric units. We need to enter the value in some of the following units like inches(in), feet (ft), yards (yd), centimeter (cm), or meter. We need to have complete knowledge of the conversion of some common units to the different units. So we can understand any measurements regardless of the type of the units. It can be difficult how to figure cubic feet from any other units like the cubic meter. We should be familiar with how much is a cubic yard and what its value is in cubic feet

We presenting the various units conversion, and how to figure cubic feet

**From feet:**

Length (ft) × Width (ft) × Height (ft) = Cubic feet

**From inches:**

Length (in) × Width (in) × Height (in) ÷ 1728 = Cubic feet

**From yards:**

Length (yd) × Width (yd) × Height (yd) × 27 = Cubic feet

**From cm:**

Length (cm) × Width (cm) × Height (cm) ÷ 28316.85 = Cubic feet

**From meters:**

Length (m) × Width (m) × Height (m) × 35.314667 = Cubic feet

When we are using these above-mentioned formulas, then we are readily able to convert all the units into cubic feet.

To find the cubic yard, we use the formula to reverse the calculation from the cubic feet to cubic yard.

The formula for the cubic yard is as follows:

**Cubic yard = Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Depth (ft) ÷ 27**

There should be one question in the mind of the user, why are we measuring the area in the cubic yard, and how much is a cubic yard? The reason behind most of the materials used in the construction is measured in the cubic yard. The common material measured in cubic yards are as follows:

This is the main reason we need to calculate cubic yards regardless of the project. We require a cubic yard calculator to figure out how much material is required for our project. Find out how much you’ll require all the material according to your required length, width and depth. You need to convert and calculate cubic yards.

**Remember:**

Keep something in your mind:

- 3 feet are in 1 yard exactly
- 27 cubic feet are equal to 1 cubic yard
- 46,656 cubic inches are equal to 1 cubic yard

We now explain different geometrical shapes and how to calculate cubic yards according to their specific area along with the depth. Keep in mind we first find the area of each geometric shape, then we calculate cubic yards according to each of the geometrical shapes.

We first find the area in feet, then find how many yards of volume:

The area of the rectangular area in (feet^2)= Length x Width

The volume (feet^3)= Depth x Area

The volume in cubic (yard^3)= (volume feet^3)/27

The cubic yard of the **rectangular area **is measured efficiently by the cubic yards calculator. The most common shape of the yard is usually rectangular and square shapes.

You have observed the yard calculator showing the same result for the circular border area and circular annulus area. Keep in mind we insert different values for calculating cubic yards for both shapes. How many yards of material are required for a **circular annulus area** can be estimated by the cubic yard calculator.

The area of the inner area (feet^2)= (¼)x square root[ (a+b+c) x (b+c-a) x (c+a-b) x (a+b-c) ]

The yard calculator is a simple way to find the cubic yard of a pyramid.

The yardage calculator is an efficient way of finding the cubic yard of the most common geometrical shapes. We may need to find out how to figure cubic yards of different geometrical shapes.

**Input:**

- Select the geometric shape from the drop-down menu
- Enter the required field of your desired geometrical shape
- You can also enter the unit price
- Calculate the cubic yard

**Output:**

It can be easy to find out the construction material with the help of the cubic yard calculator.

- The result is represented in cubic yard
- There can be other units also displayed

For adding 1 foot of soil to the area, take the total square area, multiply it by one, then divide by 27 to convert the square feet into square yards.

We need around 7.11 yards. This can be determined by the cubic yard calculator

When we are using the cubic yard calculator, we can estimate the required concrete and the other material required for the whole construction site. It is essential for operation management and estimation of the total cost of our project.
