what is the best way to measure for mulch? To get it in cubic yards?
L x W x Desired depth in inches=
divide total by 324 for Cu. YDS
Or you can go to www.landscapecalculator.com
What he said....but I just do 300 it might give you slightly more but its a lot easier to divide by 300 in your head on the fly than it is to divide by 324. As rlee said multiply by inches....you have the answer for 1 inch multiply by 2 for 2 inches and so on
THANKS! For the help!
Another general rule of thumb is: 1 cubic yard of mulch will cover approx. 100 sq. ft., about 2" thick. A lot easier when you are on site to walk off the bed sizes and figure out. Just my 2 cents.......
Thanks again for the help
The math would tell me 3" thick but if it works for you great.
Yeah, this way seems to be the easiest.
