    That is a good number for top dressing a lawn with compost.

    It's just called mulch calculator... Shows a pic of a wheelbarrow, it's on Android and it's FREE...

    Judging solely from the pics, I came up with 12 yards.

    I would have guessed around 19 yds judging by the pics. Also have to remember there isn't going to be any mulch left after weeding those beds out. So there really isn't any way to skimp too much on the mulch, as I am sure you are already know.

    really?...what are you guys going to do with all this leftover mulch? Unless you get really small yds where you're at, or bagged mulch maybe.....from the pics i believe half that, maybe 10 yds max spreading at 3-4"

    Being we only use bagged mulch. Extra is fine. I had a brain fart when i posted this thread. Im pretty dead on with my mulch numbers now.
