BH,
It is easier to break down irregular beds into simple shapes.
After you have figured your square footage, give yourself a 15% increase to cover most undermeasuring. It is better to have a little more than a little less. Sometimes beds aren't exactly level and have sort of divets or slopes. The eccess mulch can and will be used efficiently.
