Estimating the cost of mulching is quick and easy using our MulchCalculator! Simply measure the length and width of your mulch beds and enter those numbers into the form below. No tape measure handy? The easiest way to measure a bed’s size is to step off the distances and convert your steps to feet. One normal step is about 2 to 3 feet for the average adult. Some landscape areas are square in shape, but most have curves and contour that makes it somewhat difficult to get the correct square footage.
If you wanted to cover the areas in our sample landscape with
bark mulch 2 inches in depth, the formula would be:
Mulch Bed 1: (60 feet x 10 feet) = 600 Square Feet
Mulch Bed 2: (30 feet x 12 feet) = 360 Square Feet
600 + 360 = 960 Square Feet
Then you simply divide the Total Square Footage of 960 by the
thickness factor for your desired depth (162 = Thickness factor
for 2 inches of mulch).
960 / 162 = 6 Cubic Yards of mulch needed
So, from this example you can see that 6 cubic yards is needed. That’s it! You now understand how to calculate the amount of material you may need for your next landscape project.
9 - 3 cubic-foot bags of mulch is equal to one yard.
Apply mulch in a 2 to 3-inch-thick layer around, but not on top of, your plants. Use a thinner layer in colder regions and/or with heavier soil that retains moisture. Use a thicker layer in warmer regions and/or with sandy soils that dry quickly. Never pile mulch against plant stems, tree trunks, or perennial crowns, as doing so will block air circulation.
In colder regions, the best time to apply mulch is in late spring, after soil has warmed and before summer heat arrives. In late fall, after the ground freezes, apply additional mulch around plants you want to protect through winter, such as roses or tender perennials. In warmer regions, make sure to put mulch down before summer heat arrives.
It's kind of amazing, actually, that simply adding a layer of mulch can do so much for your garden—it's a pretty impressive return on investment, if you ask us!
