At the Garden Center, we stock four colors of mulch, washed gravels, decorative stone, soils, amendments and base materials – all available for delivery or pick up! Call the Garden Center for pricing and inventory.
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
250 divided by 9 = 27.7, 27.7divided by 36 = 0.77
0.77 multiplied by 3 = 2.3 just over 2 yards needed.)
*Delivery of mulch, soil and stone is available. There is a 3 yard minimum for any delivery and a delivery charge. Charges will be quoted based on distance from Garden Center. (Weekday deliveries only)
How much does that bulk material weigh? (*please consider these weights when loading your trucks and trailers.)
