If its cubic feet, it is 27 cubic feet to a cubic yard. If it,s a mulch estimate I'd say 100 square feet to a cubic yard. Here's a handy web site that might help. http://members.aol.com/MonT714/convrsns/

If you choked a Smurf, what color would it turn?

I'd give my right hand , if I could be ambidextrous!

If you're trying to figure sq.ft coverage per cubic yard:

27 cuft/yd so
Depth 12" - 27 sqft
" 6" - 27*2 =54sqft
" 4" - 27*3=81 sqft
" 3" - 27*4=108 sqft

Formula 27cuft *(12/#inches desired depth)=sq.ft. coverage

Just remember that generally when dealing w/ bulk materias, you do get a little more than bagged product!!

If you fail to plan ..... you plan to fail.
