If you want to spread it 2" thick, Just devide 2193 by 152. i think it is about 14.6 yards.

6.77 Square yards for 1 inch and 13.54 sq Yards for 2 inch. Great mulch coversion site http://www.lumberjax.com/mulch.html#calculator And It depends if they want you to do edging or re trenching so mulch dosent find its way into the yard. and the number or people on crew. Post and il will reply approx price that I would give. and with yardage I would go up and get half a more yard that you need for a remulch. Never know where spots are gonna need it on a remulch. Thanks Randy's Lawn Care

One square yard = 27sq feet you can figure this out.

I make my hieght in yards 1"=.03 yards, 2"=.06 yards 3" .08 yards and I pace out my beds my pace is approx 3'

or you can measure beds in feet and them bed hight in tenths of an inch and then divided by 27 to get from sqft to sqyd

I have a small book, actually basicly a pamphlet that cost me a dollar that has several thousand conversion factors. it was made bythe sillcocks-miller Company out of Berkely Height NJ... But I dont think they are in business any more.
