I plan on laying mulch next year and have been looking into figuring out how to bid compeditivly and not like a srub> I'm very thankful for all the help with the formulas so far.

But I'ld like to know how many 1 sq/ft bags equal 1 cu/yard. I figure 27, since a cu/yr is 3x3x3 and a sq/ft is 1x1x1.
Am I right?

A Cubic foot is 1X1X1, a square foot is 1X1. You are right, you would need 27, 1 cubic foot bags to equal 1 cubic yard. Mike

Here is an Excel calculator to figure from square feet of area to be covered at however many inches of depth and it gives you cubic yards.
The formula I used is

Square feet of area to be covered divided by 27. Take that number and multiply it by the number of inches of depth and divide that number by 12.

(Sqft / 27) * (inches of depth/12)
