Material Calculator

PLEASE READ THIS: This calculator is approximate. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU ROUND UP TO ACCOUNT FOR MATERIAL COMPACTION. Some of our products are sold by Volume, some are sold by Weight, and some are sold by Square Foot or Linear Foot…which can be confusing. If you are not 100% confident with your measurements, please contact a Main’s salesperson for assistance.

Bulk Material

We specialize in delivering our landscape materials in bulk.  Most bulk products are sold by the Cubic Yard, but, in some cases, bulk products that are sold by the Ton may need to be converted to the Yard according to the material’s weight.
