Length x width x 3/12 divided by 3. Does that sound right for 3 inches of mulch?
3" is overkill in my opinion, unless they specifically asked for it.
You need to put down atleast 3" in a new bed. If you're topdressing, 1-2" is fine. If you put down less than 3" you'll just be back next year doin it again. Most people up here want 3".
Oh, well that's exactly why I do it. This = more $. This is also why I spray my roundup to last a month, so I keep getting paid.
I go about 1.5-2" unless the customer specifically wants otherwise
I have 3 so I don't end up short, and most of her flower beds are bare. I spray round up every week when I mow at a couple of places, if I see a weed, I spray it. Is my formula right though? I don't want to screw up. Preen works really well too.
Ok, find the area... So lets say its 20x10, and they want it 2" thick...
Well, you need the volume... And 2" is 2/12 of a foot or 1/6= .16
20 take your area (200 sq ft) and multiply by thickness (.16)... 200x .16= 32
So thats 32 cu ft, but they sell bulk mulch by the cu yd whic is 3x3x3 ft...
So thats 27 cu ft per yd...
You would need 1.18 yds and i add in 10% for error... so 1.18x 1.1= 1.298 yds...
Thicknesses Guide ... (The number you multiply by your sq ft, then divide by 27)
1"= 0.83 ft
2"= 0.16 ft
3"= 0.25 ft
4"= 0.33 ft
Length x width x 3/12 divided by 3. Is that right or wrong, that is what I am asking. I have not got a yes or no on it.
that seems screwed up. 4 inches is not .33ft and 1 inch is not .83 feet.
length x width x .25 divided by 27
it is 27? hum. ok
