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||One 3ft³ Bag||One 2ft³ Bag||One 1.5ft³||1 yd³|
|1″ deep||36 ft²||24 ft²||18 ft²||324 ft²|
How much Mulch do I need?
Calculate how many cubic feet/yards needed by using the following formulas:
L x W = feet² x D(depth) = feet³
feet³ ÷ 27 = yards³
Bulk Loads of mulch are measured in cubic yards.
- 13.5 – 2 cu.ft. bags to = 1 cubic yard of mulch.
- 9 – 3 cu.ft. bags to = 1 cubic yard of mulch.
- 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:
