View Full Version : estimating mulch for a curved flower bed

i am sure that this has been asked before but i can't find it. how do you estimate the amount of mulch to get for a flower bed that is curved? i know the standard equation (total sq. ft. X depth desired (in feet) / 27 = total cubic yards needed) how do you figure it out for a bed that isnt a perfect rectangle?

If you get real good you wont even have to measure anymore.;)

Average length by average width ought to get you close.....

The same as if it was a perfect rectangle. Round up your width measurement and use your total length measurement just as it is.
