A simple form to calculate how many yards of material (such as bark mulch, soil, concrete, gravel, etc) are needed to cover square feet to a given depth in inches.

By default, the calculator is for rectangular areas. User enters length and width in feet and depth in inches; the calculator returns yards of material needed, rounded up to the nearest whole number. You can also round to two decimal places (hundredths) by adding a parameter to the shortcode, like this:

[yardagecalc rounding="hundredths"]

I’ve also included calculations for circular and right triangular areas– just modify the shortcode like this:


[yardagecalc type="circle"]


[yardagecalc type="triangle"]

The calculator has no dependencies, adds ✨nothing✨ to your WordPress dashboard, and is style agnostic.
