Mulch Calculator


You can estimate cubic yards of mulch needed for your project using the formula below.  If you have purchased bag product in the past, 13.5 bags of 2 cubic foot mulch equals 1 cubic yard of bulk material.  The formula also works well for compost and topsoil, but you should account for settling.


(L x W = SQ.FT x D(depth)=CU.FT) or (CU.FT / 27 = cubic yards)
