The following formula can be used to estimate how much mulch is needed to cover a certain area:
length (ft) X width (ft) X desired depth (in) X 0.0031 = total yards of mulch
- Helps retain moisture in soil
- Helps control and slow down weed growth
- Insulates soil
- Helps control erosion
- Adds nutrients to soil as it decomposes
- Dresses up flower beds
- Before mulching, clear the entire area of weeds, leaves, and grass.
- If there is existing mulch, loosen the old mulch for better moisture penetration.
- Do not apply too much; 2 to 4 inches is the general recommendation.

- What is a cubic yard?
