Enter the area length (ft), the area width (ft), and the depth of material (in) into the Landscape Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Landscape Volume. 

Landscape Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Landscape Volume. 

LV = AL * AW * D/12

  • Where LV is the Landscape Volume (ft^3)
  • AL is the area length (ft) 
  • AW is the area width (ft) 
  • D is the depth of material (in) 

How to Calculate Landscape Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Landscape Volume.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the area length (ft).
    1. The area length (ft) is given as 48.
  2. Next, determine the area width (ft). 
    1. The area width (ft) is calculated as: 94.
  3. Next, determine the depth of material (in). 
    1. The depth of material (in) is found to be: 2.
  4. Finally, calculate the Landscape Volume using the formula above: 

LV = AL * AW * D/12

Inserting the values from above yields: 

LV = 48*94*2/12 = 752 (ft^3)


Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

area length (ft) = 50

area width (ft) = 47

depth of material (in) = 2

Entering these values and solving gives:

LV = 50 * 47 * 2/12 = 391.66 (ft^3)
