I want to buy bulk mulch, i have a customer that buys 20 cubic feet, how many yards is this? what is the formula

2. ### MarcSmithLawnSite Fanaticfrom Washington DCMessages: 7,157

1 cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. 3x3x3=27.

20 cubic feet is the equivalent of 10 bags of mulch from home depot...

1 cubic yard of mulch will cover about 100 square feet 3" deep 10'x10'x.25'(3")

One pallet of mulch generally has enough bags to equate 4.5 yards.

I get asked this all the time in my Garden Center. It takes 13.5, two cu. ft. bags of mulch to = 1cu. yard.

All the info above is correct. I have a calculator that I bought at Home Depot that does all the conversions I need for estimating. They keep them close to the tool area at mine. It is yellow and about 7-10 bucks. Helps on alot of jobs.

One yard is 3 feet or 36 inches long. Nothing more, nothing less....a cubic yard is a box(cube) one yard long on each side.or 27 cubic feet 3x3x3

IN many case though when you go to a nursery or supply house, folks say "hey I need a yard of mulch" meaning cubic yard....since getting 36" of mulch would be pretty useless....

Seriously you should n't be in business if you don't even know this basic of math.
