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.

I built my garden with 8 cubic yards last year. I had the best garden ever! When I expanded my garden this year, I ordered 4 more cubic yards. I ordered online, and a few days later, I had the dirt - hassle free.

Online ordering process was simple. Got dirt less than 48 hours later. The dump truck driver got the truck into our backyard which was no easy feat. We have a single car driveway, an overhang and lots of wires. Made our life much easier. The worm dirt is very rich and we got our garden all planted with it. Can't wait to see what comes up!

The worm dirt topsoil gave me what I wanted. I believe that it was supposed to be screened through 5/8 " openings, what I received could not have passed through that size as I had pieces of broken brick and root matter that was larger than that, but that's ok with me. Was not a big deal as I can pick that out. I expanded the size of my garden, I got what I wanted.

This product is excellent for gardens, in fact I use it in my raised beds. My only issue was that there was quite a bit of foreign debris (i.e., plastic, metal, etc.) in this load. I will definitely buy again however because once we removed the debris, the dirt is of a high quality. Kurtz Bros offers excellent service, delivered it right where I needed it and were timely in their delivery calling first before arriving. Thank you!
