New and old gardens for mulching

It's important to know it is different if you are starting a new garden vs. remulching an existing garden.

If you are starting a new garden, you will want to add amendments to the entire area of the garden. Use the actual square footage for your calculations below.

If you are mulching or amending an existing garden approximate the percentage of the garden that is not occupied by plants. (Ex. 1/8, 1/4 or whatever) Multiply the actual square footage by the percentage not occupied by plants. The resulting square footage is the number you will use for your calculations below.

Coverage Depth Sq. Ft. / Cu. Yard
1...................... 320
2.......................160
3.......................110
4.......................80
