    What he said....but I just do 300 it might give you slightly more but its a lot easier to divide by 300 in your head on the fly than it is to divide by 324. As rlee said multiply by inches....you have the answer for 1 inch multiply by 2 for 2 inches and so on

    Another general rule of thumb is: 1 cubic yard of mulch will cover approx. 100 sq. ft., about 2" thick. A lot easier when you are on site to walk off the bed sizes and figure out. Just my 2 cents.......

    The math would tell me 3" thick but if it works for you great.
