    (Sq. Ft.)*(depth spread)/27=cubic yards

    Length X Width = square feet

    sq ft X the number of inches deep you want to spread it

    That number divided by 12

    Then that number divided by 27

    I just always say one yard of mulch covers about 180 Sq ft of a bed with no previous mulch and one with mulch is 200 sq ft. It's not science but I don't go wrong.
