Excavation is a critical part of many construction and landscaping projects. Our Excavation Cost Calculator helps you estimate the total cost of your excavation project by considering the length, width, depth of the area, and the price per cubic yard for excavation services.

## How to Use the Excavation Cost Calculator?

1. Enter the length and width of the area to be excavated in feet.

2. Enter the depth of the excavation in feet.

3. Enter the price per cubic yard for excavation services.

4. Click on 'Calculate Cost' to get the estimated total cost of the excavation project.

### Formula for Calculating Excavation Cost

The formula used for calculating the total cost is:

**Total Cost = (Length x Width x Depth) / 27 x Price per cubic yard**

### Example Calculation

If you are excavating a 10 ft x 20 ft area to a depth of 2 ft and the price per cubic yard is $30, the total cost will be:

**Total Cost = (10 x 20 x 2) / 27 x 30 = $222.22**

### Factors Affecting Excavation Costs

Several factors can influence the overall cost of excavation, including:

- Soil type and condition
- Accessibility of the site
- Labor costs
- Equipment rental or purchase
- Permitting and regulations

This calculator provides a quick estimate, but actual costs may vary based on the specifics of your project.
