How Much Mulch Will I Need

How should I mulch? The area should be cleared of all weeds, leaves and grass. If you are replenishing the mulch on an existing area, be sure to loosen up the old mulch. Using your hands to spread the mulch produces the best results. Use a thickness of 2 to 5 inches.

How do I calculate how many yards I need? Use our mulch calculator to determine how much mulch you need. One yard of mulch will cover approximately 100sq feet at 2-3 inches deep. Multiply the length times the width of each of your beds. Then add all your totals up and divide by 100 and that is the number of yards you will use.

Example: 10ft X 15ft = 150 ft sq. 1 ½ yards
