Mulch mini nuget
One cubic yard of mulch will cover approximately 81 square feet 4" deep, or 108 square feet 3"deep, or 162 square feet 2" deep.
Most all mulch products will quickly compress down shortly after installation by about 25 percent. Example: You put down a standard 4" deep application of one of our mulch products loose, and after a little water, wind & traffic you will end up with about 3".
Recommended Application Rates
We recommend applying 3"-4" of mulch throughout most landscape planting beds featuring trees, shrubs and evergreens. In perennial beds, 2"-3" is about right. When mulching large tree spaded conifers and shade trees, figure 6"-8" of mulch over an area that more than covers the tree spade plug.
