1 cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. 3x3x3=27.

20 cubic feet is the equivalent of 10 bags of mulch from home depot...

1 cubic yard of mulch will cover about 100 square feet 3" deep 10'x10'x.25'(3")

One pallet of mulch generally has enough bags to equate 4.5 yards.

I get asked this all the time in my Garden Center. It takes 13.5, two cu. ft. bags of mulch to = 1cu. yard.

All the info above is correct. I have a calculator that I bought at Home Depot that does all the conversions I need for estimating. They keep them close to the tool area at mine. It is yellow and about 7-10 bucks. Helps on alot of jobs.

One yard is 3 feet or 36 inches long. Nothing more, nothing less....a cubic yard is a box(cube) one yard long on each side.or 27 cubic feet 3x3x3

IN many case though when you go to a nursery or supply house, folks say "hey I need a yard of mulch" meaning cubic yard....since getting 36" of mulch would be pretty useless....

If you can't do the math then hire someone smarter than you to do it for you.

most of the time I agree. But if somone cant figure out his own math tell me who will get the job. Either he overbids cause he cant figure material or he underbids get the job loses his shirt a few times and then he is working at home depot. better yet he bid it gets it and screws it up and you can come in and fix it for more than you originally quoted and make more on the same job.

One cubic yard is 27 cu feet.
So 27 cubic feet makes one cubic yard.
One cubic yard IS one yard in cubic material measurement
