Mulch

I don't usually do mulch spreading, but I've got a customer that is asking for it. How many sq ft will a yard cover?

Thanks

hmmm, don't you need to devide that by something?

example: bed is 10ft wide by 70ft long. equals 700sq. ft. times 3 inches deep equals 2100. by your standards, you need 2100 yards. lol.
