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.

Yes, it's all-purpose topsoil. There were more bits of debris (glass, broken bricks, trash) and large (grapefruit-sized) clods of nearly-impenetrable clay(?) than I had anticipated, but this dirt served its purpose.
I'm rating it 4/5 because it's described as "uniform" but it wasn't. From reading other reviews, it appears I wasn't alone in this concern.
The driver was amazing: friendly, competent and professional -- that fellow knows his job -- navigated under some low-hanging tree limbs and dropped it to within an inch of where he said it would go.
Despite the un-uniformity, I'd do business with this company again.

The top soil was very clean with only minor debris mixed in. The delivery driver was amazing and dropped it right next to the work area even though it was not easy to get to. Overall I will definitely do business with this company again.

Ordering online was easy to navigate. The delivery arrived the next day and the driver placed the pile perfectly. I ordered 6 yards and overall I was pleased with the quality. The only knock was that I found several pieces of glass in the order.

Delivery was on time, product is decent quality. Some rocks and a few bits of broken glass, however much of the product is great quality. Ordering interface through the website was easy and convenient.

Order this top soil twice. The first 3 yards was nice and clean and I used it to fill in and elevate the grade around my house. Was pleased and ordered 6 more yards to fill in low spots around the yard and in flower beds. The second delivery was not comparable and filled with stones, sticks, broken glass and garbage. Disappointing, especially for the intent of use.
