How big is your flower bed in square feet? How deep do you want the mulch to be? We multiply the two (in feet) to get the number of cubic feet.

For example, if your flowed bed is 10' by 15' and you want you much to be 6" deep, we would calculate the area of your flower bed as 10 x 15 or 150 square feet. We have to convert the mulch depth from 6' to 1/2' or 0.5'. We multiply the 150 square feet by 1/2' and get 75 cubic feet.

Good luck.

How it Works

### Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a
3" depth.
1. First, the depth must be converted to feet. To convert inches to feet, simply divide inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot.

So for our example: 3 inches divided by 12 equals a 0.25 foot depth.
2. Now that we have the depth in feet, we can multiply the depth by the area.

So for our example: 0.25 foot depth times 500 square feet equals 125 cubic feet.
3. If you are calculating 0.5, 2, or 3, cubic foot bags, simply divide 125 cubic feet by the size of the bag.

So for our example: if we are using 2 cubic foot bags, we can divide 125 cubic feet by 2 which equals 62.5 bags.
4. If you are calculating cubic yards, we need to convert 125 cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, see the diagram below.

So for our example: 125 cubic feet divided by 27 equals 4.63 cubic yards.

• 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
• 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet
• 2 inc

### I'm buying 120 bags of mulch. each bag contains 2 cubic feet of mulch.so I'm trying to visualize how big this would be (w' x l' x h') PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!

The Dimensions really depend on the shape of the bags. for visualization purposes the bed of a Ford F150 is about 55 cubic feet you're getting 240 cubic feet so that's close to 4.5 truck beds.

### Convert 2,000 cubic ft to sq ft

Cubic foot is a unit of volume. Square foot is a unit of area. There is no conversion.

Let's say you have 2000 cubic feet of mulch. That can cover a 2000 square foot yard one foot deep. It can also cover a one square foot flowerbed 2000 feet deep.

### What is the area of 2 cubic feet of mulch

That depends on how thin you spread the mulch. 2 cubic feet of mulch spread a foot thick covers 2 square feet. The same amount of mulch spread an inch thick covers 24 square feet.

### How to calculate cubic feet

How thick do you want the mulch? The planter is 24 feet by 18 feet or 432 square feet. If you want mulch one foot deep then you need 432 cubic feet. For two feet, 864 cubic feet. For mulch one inch deep, 36 cubic feet.
