Figure out how much mulch you need

1. With a measuring tape, measure how many feet long the landscape bed will be, and then measure how many feet wide. Multiplying these two numbers will give you the square foot area of your landscape bed.

2. Decide how thick you want your mulch to be. 2" is average. If you are just top dressing a previously mulched bed, you may wish to use as little as 1" of mulch. Below we've listed a pair of charts to help you calculate how much you need.

Bagged material
A 3 cubic foot bag will cover:

  • 144 sq. ft. 1/4" deep
  • 72 sq. ft. 1/2" deep
  • 36 sq. ft. 1" deep
  • 18 sq. ft. 2" deep
  • 12 sq. ft. 3" deep
  • 9 sq. ft. 4" deep

Bulk material
A cubic yard will cover:

  • 1296 sq. ft. 1/4" deep
  • 648 sq. ft. 1/2" deep
  • 324 sq. ft. 1" deep
  • 162 sq. ft. 2" deep
  • 108 sq. ft. 3" deep
  • 81 sq. ft. 4" deep

1 square yard = 9 square feet
1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
