Mulch is often sold by weight in bags, but a volume is assigned to the material in bags, too. We'll treat this as a volume problem as we have an area to cover (880 square feet), and a depth of coverage assigned (2 inches). We have to find the volume of that 880 square feet by 2 inch volume. First, we need to convert either the area in square feet to square inches, or the depth in inches to feet. The latter makes more sense (and it's easier), so let's do that.

The 2 inches is 2/12ths of a foot, or 1/6th of a foot. We'll go with that. If we have 880 square feet by 1/6th of a foot in depth, we have 880 square feet times 1/6 feet, which is 146 2/3rds cubic feet of mulch, the required amount of mulch to cover the given area to the desired depth.

6 It depends how deep you want it.

I would guess about 70-80 bales

12 inches = 1 foot Thus the tiles would be 1 foot square. You therefore need 30 to cover a 30 square foot room.

There are 144 square inches in a square foot. The answer would be 11,232 square inches.

A square that is six inches on a side would have an area of 36 square inches.

1 yard of mulch at 12 inches deep would cover 25 sq. ft., so for 400 square feet you would need 16 yards. 12 inches is the depth you need to start with because the mulch will settle.

One cubic yard of mulch will cover approximately 160 square feet at 2" deep, so you would need approximately two cubic yards of mulch to cover 271 square feet at 2" deep.

Three square feet would cover one square yard or 36 square inches.

If they 16 is in inches, this would be 256 square inches per tile. That would cover 10,496 square inches. Divide by 144 and you get 72.89 square feet.

When you say a yard, you are actually saying a cubic yard. If you were to place the much in a 3 foot high by 3 foot wide by 3 foot tall cube, it would exactly fill the cube. How much it covers depends on how deeply you spread it. Since you should spread it at a dept of no less than 4 inches, it should cover about 20 square feet. If you spread it deeper than that, it will of course, cover less area.The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 324/(depth of the mulch, in inches)

To find the square footage that 27 cubic feet would cover, you would need additional information such as the height or depth. Cubic feet measures volume (3 dimensions), while square feet measures area (2 dimensions). Without knowing the height or depth, it is not possible to determine the square footage.

1 cubic yard covers 324 square feet per inch of thickness, divide 324 by thickness in inches to get coverage, i.e. 4 inches thick would cover 324/4=81 square feet, 36 inches thick would cover (you guessed it) 9 square feet.

Each brick is 27 square inches. 27*434=11,718 square inches of bricks.

Approximately 73 square feet.

You would need 1,260 cubic feet of mulch to cover an area of 28 x 45 feet. This is calculated by multiplying the length (28 ft) by the width (45 ft) to get the total square footage (1,260 sq ft) and then multiplying by the desired depth of mulch.

If your tiles are 12 inches x 12 inches you would need 144 of them.
