If you had a mulch bed that was 40 ft long,6 foot wide and 3 inches deep then you would have 40 x 6 x .250 = 60 cu ft

60 cu ft / 27 = 2.22 cu yds

so basically 1 cubic yrd will cover 324 ft at 1 inch deep, and L x W sq ft

Go on google and type in "mulch calculator" Then all you do is type in the dimensions and it will tell you how much mulch you need
