    Can someone tell me how you figure out how much mulch a property gets.
    How many inches do you lay down? (Average)
    Per tree, etc....

    Just Google mulch calculator and you will find a bunch of calculators to use, not just for mulch they have soil, stone, etc. Hope this helps.

    It's (cu. ft.) x .16 (2") / 27 (? of cu. ft. in cu. yd.)

    You can add .8 to the depth variable for each in.

    (new beds could use up to 3")

    Thanks everyone. I tried both formulas and they are accurate within .02 of each other.
