Not sure what the mulch calculator was but if it is self explanatory than just take sqft of area divide it by 27 to turn into sq yards then multiply by depth. Ie: 2000 sq ft. 2000/27= 74. I want to mulch at 3 inch depth. 3/12 =.25 (percent of feet depth) take 74 x .25 = 18.5 yards of mulch.
If this isn't what is being talked about then disregard my comment.

Yep... another way of thinking about it is to take the yard of mulch and knowing how many inches you wish to add, figure out how many square feet each yard will provide. 27 cubic feet are in a cubic yard. That means 27 square feet 1 foot high. Because you require less mulch as the depth decreases, you can multiple 27 by the reciprocal of the fraction of a foot... EG at 3 inches multiple by 4 because 3/12's reciprocal is 12/3=4.
1 cubic yard gives you: 27*(12/4)= 81 square feet at 4 inches high 27*(12/3)= 108 square feet at 3 inches high 27*(12/2)= 162 square feet at 2 inches high ...etc. This way you also know how many leftover sq. feet you will have as well to plan accordingly.

you need a mulch calculator????? Jeessshhhh!!! After you figure how many square feet you have you are suddenly incapable to divide the total by 300 to know how many yards you need to put down an inch. You really want me to say what I think of that??? Didn't think so ....
