How much mulch do I need?
It depends on how deep you want to place your mulch. One cubic yard
will cover 100 square feet at a depth of 3 inches. An easy way to
figure out how much mulch you will need is to obtain the square footage
of the area you want to cover and divide that number by 100. This
will give you the number of cubic yards that you need to cover your
area. For instance, if you have 750sqft. Divide 750 by 100 and you
will get 7.5....thus you will need 7.5 cubic yards to cover that
area at a depth of three inches. If you want to cover an area at
a different depth refer to the chart on the overview page.
What is a cubic yard ?
A cubic yard is volume measurement of 27 cubic feet. Our products

the same as the back end of a small pick up truck. A full
size truck can hold anywhere from 1.5 to 3 cubic yards.
When is the best time to apply mulch ?
It depends upon the need. Some mulches are best for winter, to keep the
root system warm. Some are good for summer to keep the weeds down and
the roots moist.... Mulching

Many homeowners think of mulch as strictly cosmetic, just something to
make the place look good. And its true that mulch around the
base of trees and shrubs does improve property appearance. But
there's an awful lot more that mulch contributes to your landscape
by making maintenance a much easier, and providing other benefits
that are underground and out of sight. Retaining Moisture & Inhibiting
Weed Growth. Mulched soil retains moisture much better
around your trees than bare soil can. This means watering less (a major
concern as our water supply becomes depleted) and reducing the chance
of water stress on the trees. Mulch also cuts down soil erosion or
wash-out around trees, it keeps weeds down, reduces soil compaction,
and can even improve soil structure as the mulch breaks down. Mulched
barriers around trees also keep mowers and trimmers from causing mechanical
damage to the trees.
