COVERAGE CHART FOR BAGS AND BULK

 

 

To determine how much mulch you will need measure the area you plan to mulch by length and width.
 

 

Desired Depth 1-3 cu.ft. Bag 1-2 cu.ft. Bag 1-1.5 cu.ft. Bag 1 cubic yard
1″ deep 36 sq. ft. 24 sq. ft. 18 sq.ft. 324 sq. ft.
2″ deep 18 sq. ft. 12 sq. ft. 9 sq. ft. 162 sq. ft.
3″ deep 12 sq. ft. 8 sq. ft. 6 sq. ft. 108 sq. ft.
4″ deep 9 sq.ft. 6 sq. ft. 4.5 sq. ft. 81 sq. ft.

 
 


 

HOW MUCH MULCH DO I NEED?

Calculate how many cubic feet/yards needed by using the following formulas:

(L x W = sq.ft. x D(depth)=cu.ft.) or (cu.ft. ./. 27 = cubic yards)

Bulk Loads of mulch are measured in cubic yards.

*It takes 13.5 – 2 cu.ft. bags to = 1 cubic yard of mulch.
*It takes 9 – 3 cu.ft. bags to = 1 cubic yard of mulch.
*It takes 18 1.5 cu.ft. bags to = 1 cubic yard of mulch

 

BULK SEMI LOAD DELIVERIES

Bulk loads of mulch measure 80-120 cubic yards per semi-load depending on weight and trailer size.

We ask that the customer, or a representative be available to approve the load before unloading.

The formula to measure the load while on the truck in “cube” form is: W x L x H ./. by 27 = cubic yards
