Width of mulch bed, in feet.
How thick will the mulch be laid?

How to calculate mulch.

Length x Width = total sq. ft. of area

Total sq. ft. of area (divided) by how deep you want to apply

  • divide by: 160 = 2″ deep
  • divide by: 120 = 3″ deep
  • divide by: 80 = 4″ deep

Fact: 27 cubic feet = 1 Yard
Mulch is sold in 2 cu. ft. bags. 14 bags = 1 cu. Yard

Example: If the Calculator says you require 5 yards of mulch, you will need 70 (2 cubic ft.) bags.

5 (cu. yards) X 14 (bags per yard) = 70 total bags!
