Does anyone know the formula for figuring out yards of mulch?
L x W x D divided by 27 gives you cubic yards of anything.
I measured out 957 square feet and want to apply 2 inches average of mulch.
LxWxD divided by 27 is when you are working with numbers in feet; your example is 957 square feet times 2/12 or.17 feet deep, divided by 27 cu. ft. per yard = 5.9 yd.
6 yards should do it. might have a few pieces of mulch left over
Forgot to tell you to convert the inches into a decimal of a foot.
Go to my web page and there is a page on conversions and formula's, etc.
Print it out for a good reference.
Hope this helps!
Thanks fellas. I had a formula written down and lost it that was slightly different, but this will work.
my exact calculation was 6.07 i believe. so i figured 6
here is my example
