Q. How much mulch do I need?
A. We recommend you mulch 3 inches deep for new beds, or beds that haven’t been mulched in a while. At this depth, one cubic yard covers approximately 100 square feet. Try the mulch calculator on our site and it’ll give you an idea. We know that beds are not always clean rectangles, so you might have to fudge your numbers a little.
