36x36x36 inches or 3x3x3 feet or 27 cubic feet. If applied a foot thick, it will cover 27 square feet; 6 inches thick = 54 square feet (e.g.: an area 9 feet by 6 feet); 3 inches thick = 81 square feet (e.g.: an area 9 feet by 9 feet).

If the mulch is spread 4 inches thick, it will cover 81 square feet. 1 yard = 27 ft3 4 in = (1/3) ft 27 ft3 / (1/3) ft = 81 ft2

One cubic yard will cover a 324 square-foot area with one inch of mulch. However your mulch should be 2 to 3 inches thick to maintain moisture and prevent weed growth. Be careful not to go to thick or you will cause mold to form in the mulch.

It depends on how thick the mulch is applied. For example, if applied at an average depth of two inches, the cubic yard of mulch will cover 162 square feet. If applied at an average depth of four inches, half that area or 81 square feet, etc.

The area covered by one cubic yard of Mulch is dependant on the depth that themulch is applied. At 3" it covers 108 ft2, at one inch it covers over 300 ft2.The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the mulch, in inches)

To solve this convert all measurement to a yard or square yard basis: 3 inches is 0.083333333333 yard and 1500 square feet = 1500/9 = 166.6666666666667 square yards Thus the amount of mulch you need is 166.6666666666667*0.083333333333= 13.88888888883333 cubic yards. so you need to purchase 14 cubic yards of mulch for the job.
