Mulch & More

1 cubic yard of mulch covers approximately 100 square feet (10' x 10' area) with a 2-3" depth

To figure out how mulch/stone you will need:

  • Length x width (Sq. Ft.)
  • Then, divide this number by 9.
  • And divide that answer by 36 and multiply by desired depth (ex. 3 inches) = cubic yards
ex: 10 ft. x 25 ft. area = 250 square feet
250 divided by 9 = 27.777, 27.777 divided by 36 = 0.7716
0.7716 multiplied by 3 = 2.314........ just over 2 yards needed.

*Delivery of mulch, soil and stone is available. There is a 3 yard minimum for any delivery and a $40 minimum delivery charge. Charges will be quoted based on distance from Garden Center.

How much does that bulk material weigh? (*please consider these weights when loading trucks and trailers.)

Topsoil, Topsoil w/ Compost, Compost, & Sand: about 2,200 lbs. (when dry) per cubic yard

Gravel #1,2,3, Stone Dust & Driveway Mix: about 2,500 lbs. per cubic yard

Cobblestone: about 2,800 lbs. per cubic yard

**Note: Being an organic material, mulch, when damp, is the perfect environment for funghi growth. While it may be an eye-sore for the homeowner this orange-yellow growth is not harmful to the mulch or plants and can be easily removed from the area by raking.
