    I don't usually do mulch spreading, but I've got a customer that is asking for it. How many sq ft will a yard cover?

    Thanks
    :D

    108 sq. ft. @ 3" deep. Length of bed X width of bed X desired depth of mulch.

    hmmm, don't you need to devide that by something?

    example: bed is 10ft wide by 70ft long. equals 700sq. ft. times 3 inches deep equals 2100. by your standards, you need 2100 yards. lol.
