Mulch, Soil, Gravel & Sand Calculator

How much mulch do I need?

Mulch is sold by the cubic yard. One cubic yard of the material covers a 324-square-foot area an inch deep. We recommend 2-4 inches per square foot.

To determine your total, multiply your square footage by the depth in inches desired, then divide by 324. Use our calculator or here’s the formula: Square footage x desired depth / 324 = cubic yards needed.

How much will my truck hold?

  • Standard 6 ft. bed pickup = 2 cubic yards mulch
  • Standard 8 ft. bed pickup = 3 cubic yards mulch
