    Lil Yard dude !

    Do a search.. I m not sure where , but somewhere someone had posted a link to a material calculator... I have it printed out here.. It says that A yard of mulch covers 160 sq ft at 2" thick and 92 sq ft at 3" thick... But again do a search here and youll find that link I mentioned... Good luck

    16 ft x 5 ft = 80 Sq ft.... according to my calculator anyway ? LOL

    So one yard will be enough to cover that at 3".....according to that list I have anyway ?

    Hope this helps but do your own calculations too...

    Almost every formula needed for landscape calculations are in the back of any good grade school math book. Look under the formulas for area and volume.
