Area

1 cu. yd. = 27 cu. ft.
1 sq. yd. = 9 sq. ft.
Area of a circle = 3.14 x radius squared
Area of a square = height x width
1 Acre = 43,560 sq. ft.

Liquid Equations

1 Gallon = 128 Ounces
4 Quarts = 1 Gallon
2 Pints = 1 Quart
2 Tablespoon = 1 Ounce
3 Teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon

3-4-5 Method

This is used when you need to have precise 90 degree angles. When working with large projects, the accuracy of a carpenters square will not suffice. This method will always work. You create a triangle with one leg 3 feet long and the other leg 4 feet long. You then draw a line connecting the two legs that is exactly 5 feet long. The corner opposite the 5 footside will be exactly 90 degrees.

Pavers & Walls

Recommendations

Pavers:
The base should be approximately 4-6" deep fpr walkways and patios and 8-12" deep for driveways. The base material should be 3/4" processed stone. The top inch should be covered with washed sand. The pavers are then laid on this base.
Walls:
Walls less than four feet tall, excavate a trench about 12" deep and 24" wide. The base should be filled with 3/4" processed and compacted every couple of inches. Walls taller than four feet usually require a different block or an engineer.
