Best Answer

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.
