Mulching Guide

To use this chart, begin by selecting your required mulching depth in one of the first three columns. Within that column, select the square footage that is the nearest match to, but at least as much as, the area you will be mulching. Then simply follow that row across to determine how many cubic yards (if you're buying in bulk) or 3-cubic-foot bags you will need.
