ok, now where did the 3 and 12 come from?

53x34 = 1802

1802/100 = 18 yards.

I probably went 2" deep at the start being stingy due to only having 10 yards. The closer I got to the end I went to 3" deep

Ok I see

Still the question remains how I have so much left over?

Only used half the required amount?

Ok I figured where the extra pine bark came from

Remember when I first started spreading I was going stingy? I had 10 yards and knew I needed 18

Right side of the shed the bark is about 2" thick and I didn't go all the way to the fence as there was bark there already I was extending out from there.

Before I put new in there and went thicker I wanted to see how much I could cover with what I had.

After I got the right side of the shed area done, seen I had plenty I started going 3" deep on the left side so now I have the area in back of the shed also done and started down the fence row freshening up that I'll have a little bit left to spread in the area on the right side and make that a bit thicker also.

But 18 yards?
Don't know where I'd have put it all I'm glad I stopped at 10 yards
