FAQ

u

How Much Material do I require for my driveway?

Calculation 12′ x 12′ x 4” deep (length x width x depth)
Example:
12′ x 12′ x 4”/12” therefore 12′ x 12′ x .33 = 47.52 cubic feet
47.52 ft 3/27 = 1.76 yards3 Cubic Feet = 27 ft in a yard3
There is 1.35 metric tonne in a cubic yard so this project would require 2.4 m to cover an area 12′ x 12′ x 4″/area.
