Question MarkHow Much Mulch or Compost Do I Need?

(Sq. Feet of Garden Bed X .25) \ 27 = Yards of Compost or Mulch Needed

Length of Garden Bed  x  Width of Garden Bed  =  Square Footage of Bed

150 Sq. Ft.  =  1 Yd. of Hardwood Bark Mulch, applied at 2 inch depth.

100 Sq. Ft.  =  1 Yd. Compost, applied at 3 inch depth.

Another Way to Look at Amounts:   1 Yd. of Compost covers a 10′ x 10′ area 3 inches deep,
and 
1 Yd. of Compost is roughly equal to 19 bags.
