Best Answer

12 in = 1 ft

volume = area × depth

= 16 sq ft × 2 in

= 16 sq ft × (2 ÷ 12) ft

= 2⅔ cu ft

≈ 2.67 cu ft

Half a cubic foot.

3 inches = 1/4 footVolume = (308 x 1/4) = 77 cubic feet.That's (77/2) = 38.5 bags

(22/3 square yards) divided by (depth of mulch in inches)

100 cubic foot bags.

That's 13 cubic yards of mulch for every 2 inches deep.

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.

1 cubic yard will cover 15 square yards at 3 inches deep.

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.

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.

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.
