Split a load with my daughter. She wanted help with making her gardens soil better, she has a lot of clay. I needed to add to what I already have. It was a win for both of us.

Great mulch product. I've alternated between triple shred and sweet peet and I really like the ease with which the sweet peet can be spread and its versatility in beds or as a top dressing for reseeding.
1. With a measuring tape, measure how many feet long the bed is. Then measure how many feet wide. Multiply these two figures. The total is the square foot area of that landscape bed.
2. Decide how thick you want your mulch to be (2” is average). For new landscape beds, 4” of mulch is recommended. If you are just top dressing a previously mulched bed, you may wish to use as little as 1” of mulch. Using the conversion chart below or Mulch Calculator to the right, you can figure how many cubic yards or bags of mulch, soil or gravel to order.
3. If you still have questions, please call our visit one of our stores. If you have the total area of your landscape beds calculated, we’d be glad to help you figure the amount of mulch, soil or gravel you will need.
