height x length x width = how many inches you need. there are 36inches in a yard so divide the = by 36, so what ever hxwxl/36 and you'll know how much mulch you'll need.

i think im right, correct me if im wrong.

At the top of this forum there is a thread titled "How to determine how much mulch is needed". It will tell you what you need to know, unless you can't read or do math. Sorry if I come across as snotty, but this is why they made all of us do story problems in school.....

Some people have forgot the Readin part of Readin, Ritin and rthmathic. We seem to have the same question over and over and over again.

well see B&B what i do is i take my left eye and close it, squint with my right eye, put up my thumb to check the wind, take a few steps forward and back, and then i make an educated guess, but yeah, if you're not that good with guessing, then measure, and think of a cube that is 27cuft (yard) and do some old fashion math
