Calculating Cubic Yards of Soil and Mulch:

The most asked question regarding soil and mulch is, "How much do I need?". The chart below will assist you in determining how much material you will need.

  1. Determine the square footage of the area and find the number down the left side of the chart.
  2. Determine the depth of the material needed and find that number along the top of the chart.
  3. Where the two boxes intersect will be the approximate cubic yards of material needed.

* When calculating for soil, add 20% to the yardage recommended on the chart to account for compaction.
