How Much Material do You Need to Order?
Our mulch is sold by the cubic yard. Use these hints to estimate how much you will need to order. Stone is sold by the ton and can be estimated in a similar fashion (see Additional Coverage Information on this page).
When estimating quantities for your project it may be easier to break it down into several smaller more managable shapes. Estimate each area individually then add them together and place your order. If you need help estimating, bring in a sketch with measurements and we can help.
How to Estimate Material Coverage
- Determine total square footage you will need to cover.
- Decide how deep or thick to cover
(see our depth recommendations below).
- Use the Conversion Chart below to convert square feet to cubic yards.
- Divide your total square footage by the amount covered by 1 Cubic Yard.
You need to cover 850 square feet to a depth of 3"
575 sqft ÷ 108 sqft/yd = 5.32 cubic yards
Round up and order 5.5 yards of mulch.

|2" Deep||162 square feet|
|3" Deep||108 square feet|
|4" Deep||81 square feet|
|6" Deep||54 square feet|
