**Determine the
number of square feet to be mulched.**

**For a depth
of 2" thick, divide the square footage by 6**

For a depth of 3" thick, divide the square footage by 4

For a depth of 4" thick, divide the square footage by 3

**Then divide
that number by 27 in order to arrive at the number of cubic yards
needed to cover your square foot area. (because there are 27 cubic
feet in a cubic yard.)**

**Example: 500
sq. feet of area to be covered with a 3" layer of mulch.**

500 divided by 4 = 125

125 divided by 27 = 4.63 cubic yards (rounded off to 5 yards)

**One
Yard Covers**

At a depth of 1/2" .......... 550 square feet

At a depth of 1" ............... 275 suare feet

At a depth of 2" .............. 130 square feet

At a depth of 3" ................ 70 square feet

At a depth of 6" ................ 45 square feet

At a depth of 12" .............. 20 square feet
