Circle: radius x radius x 3.14
Take the area (in square feet) divided by 100. This equals the number of cubic yards that you will need for a 2-3" depth of mulch coverage.
Ex: Your garden bed is 10' long and 5' wide. Multiply 10 by 5, which equals 50. Then divide 50 by 100, which equals .5. This means that you will need 1/2 cubic yard of mulch to cover the bed at a thickness of 2-3".
Pine needle mulch uses a different coverage rate. One bale covers approximately 25 sq. feet at 2-3" depth.
ROCK & DIRT COVERAGE
Take the area (in square feet) divided by 90. This equals the number of tons that you will need for a 2-3" depth of rock coverage.
Example: Your landscaped area is 30' long and 6' wide. Multiply 30 by 6, which equals 180. Then divide 180 by 90, which equals 2. This means that you will need 2 tons of rock to cover the bed at a thickness of 2-3".
There are 9 bags of mulch (3 cu. ft. bags) per cubic yard.
One 3 cu. ft. bag of mulch will cover approximately 15 square feet at a 2-3" depth.
There are 2000 pounds in 1 ton.
To find the weight of a granite boulder: take its length x width x depth (all in feet) x 180. This equals the weight of the boulder (in pounds).
