Mulch & Bark
Mulch & Bark Yield Information & Calculation
The initial application of two (2)-inch layer of mulch can save you yard-maintenance time. Because it smothers weeds, you do less weeding and you won't have to trim grass along borders. It reduces evaporation so you won't need to water as often. Another advantage of bark mulch is that it breaks the force of rain which prevents mud splattering on the side of your house. Mulch will last 3 to 6 years after your initial application and needs only the addition of a minimum amount of new material each year to maintain the proper depth of 2 inches and renew that rich brown color.
1 Cubic Yard = 27 Cubic Feet = (9) 3 Cubic Foot Bags = (18) 1.5 Cubic Foot Bags
Cubic Feet = Area (SF) x Depth (Inches) x .084
Cubic Yards = Area (SF) x Depth (Inches) x .003
One Cubic Yard will cover at:
(1'')--> 320 SF, (2'')--> 160 SF, (3'')--> 110 SF, (4")--> 80 SF.
|First Time (shredded mulches)||Apply 4 inch covering.|
|First Time (granular mulches)||Minimum 1 inch.|
|Remulching||2 inch covering.|
