    I need 7 yards of cocoa shells but they come in 18lb bags. Approx. how many bags am I going to need?

    If they are 2 cubic ft bags you need 98.

    Don't put cocoa shells on very thick. They will mat very easily and become virtually impenetrable. You may also end up with a fungus from the moisture that will trap in the shells.
