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.

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.
