How to calculate how much mulch, soil and stone you will need:

Bulk mulch, soil and stone are sold by the cubic yard.  To calculate how much material you will need, you first need to calculate the square footage of the area you wish to cover.

One cubic yard of material will cover approximately 100 square feet, at a depth of 3″.

Another way is to measure the length and width of the area to be covered (you may need to estimate if the area is not a defined square or rectangle area).  Convert the depth into feet.  For example, if you want to spread the mulch on 3″ thick, take 3 divided by 12 to convert the inches into feet.  (3÷12=.25).  Use the formula (length x width x thickness) to find cubic feet.  Convert the cubic feet into cubic yards by dividing the cubic feet by 27 (there are 27 cubic feet in one cubic yard).  For example, a 25′ by 6′ planting bed, with a thickness of 4″ would be as follows:  convert 4″ into feet (4÷12=.33).  Use the formula: 25 x 6 x .33 = 49.5.  Convert 49.5 into cubic yards:  49.5÷27 = 1.833 or just under 2 cubic yards of material).
