Wow, lot's of numbers flying around for simple mulch calculations. A yard of mulch covers 108 sf. So round it off, 1700 sf. job use 17 yds. of mulch. You can round or use ratios because the plants, trees, shrubs will take up some of the bed space. I know there are other calculations but, who is going to use 1" depth in one bed, 3" in another bed, or 4" in yet another? Go with 3" depth is just fine and I believe the industry standard. My mulch suppliers are always generous with their scoops, so on that job I would order 15 yards. By the way Kajun, love your truck, getting mine lettered up kind of like yours this season.
