( Note: Pound is abbreviated as lb )

### How Many Yards Are in a Ton of Gravel?

For estimating purposes in most countries;

1 yard of gravel = 3000 lb ( Commonly ranges between 2200 to 2800, but 3000 is commonly taken at the site by rounding up )

1 ton of gravel = 2000 lb

The number of cubic yards in a ton of gravel = 2000/ 3000 = 0.66 cubic yards.

In the United States;

1 cubic yard of gravel = 2800 lb

1 ton of gravel = 2000 lb

The number of cubic yards in 1 ton of gravel = 2000/2800 = 0.714 cubic yards

Hence, there are 0.714 cubic yards in 1 ton of

### 1. How Many Yards Are in a Ton of Gravel – United States

Using the thumb rule;

1 ton of gravel = 0.714 cubic yards

2 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×2 = 1.428 cubic yards

3 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×3 = 2.142 cubic yards

4 tons of gravel = 0.714 × 4 = 2.856 cubic yards

5 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×5 = 3.570 cubic yards

6 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×6 = 4.284 cubic yards,

7 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×7 = 4.998 cubic yards,

8 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×8 = 5.712 cubic yards,

9 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×9 = 6.426 cubic yards

10 tons of gravel = 0.714 ×10 = 7.140 cubic yards
