How much mulch / topsoil / gravel do I need?
Measuring is important. You need to determine the length and width of the area you want to cover, plus how many inches deep you’d like the material to be.
Once you have your measurements, you can figure out how much you need by using the following formula.
Length (in feet) x Width (in feet) = your square footage
Total Square Feet ÷ 12 x Depth (in inches) = total cubic feet
Total Cubic Feet ÷ 27 = Cubic Yards
Simply stated: L’ x W’ ÷ 12 x D” ÷ 27 = Cubic Yards
