for a 3" base, you will need 14 cu. yds. for 1500 sq ft, for 2" base you will need approx. 10 cu yds, and for 4" base you will need approx. 19 cu yds. Hope this helps

13.5 of 2cu. ft. bags = 1 yard

1 ton @ 2 " deep = 150 sf.

You multiply sq ft. by .25 (for 3 inches-3 divided by 12), by .166 (for 2 inches- 2 divided by 12). This gives you cubic ft. There are 27 cu. ft. in a yard. This works the same for mulch. If you need 40 cubic ft and you are buying 2 cubic ft. bags you have to remember to divide by two, or three if using 3 cubic ft. bags. Knowing the method is the most important because you will probably need it in the future, I find this way to be the easiest.
