I always figure the price by how many yards it will take. A 9 x 9 x 4 is a yard and that would be 81 sq ft. I 'm pretty sure that's right .You guys correct me if I'm wrong.

3'x3'x3' is a yard and cover roughly 100sqft or (10'x10') 3 inches thick. I walk the property and say to myself "thats about 10x10, 1 yard. Thats another 10x10, 2 yards." and so on. Thats how I estimate mulch. Experience helps to.
