Well, gee, I think that would be 2 bags. But if you have found a bag that is 2 cubic yards, that is ONE HUGE BAG...Enough to fill the back of a pick-up truck. I think you better look into your phrasing, one cubic yard of mulch will cover 100 square feet, or an area that is 10' x 10'.
IMPROVED ANSWER: I think you mean that 1 bag of mulch will cover 2 cubic feet. That's the standard bag sold at Lowes & Home Depot. 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet (3'x3'x3'=27). Therefore 4 cubic yards is equal to 108 cubic feet. You would need 54 bags (108/2=54).
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)
That's 13 cubic yards of mulch for every 2 inches deep.
It depends how deep you want it.
The 'square feet' of area that it covers is 1,620/(depth of the mulch, in inches)
1 cubic yard will cover ~90 sq feet
The problem here lies with the question. Landscape mulch is not measured by the yard it is measured by cubic yard. There is nothing linear about mulch. A common standard suggests that 1 cubic yard of mulch will cover about 100 sq ft of landscape 2-4 inches thick.
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.
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.
201.6 cubic ft
1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet, thus 1 cubic feet = 1/27 cubic yards and 2 cubic feet = 2/27 cubic yards (1 bag of mulch) Landscapers speak in yards of mulch needed for a garden. They are referring to cubic yards. A bag of mulch is 2 cubic feet, so you would need 13.5 bags of mulch to equal 1 cubic yard (yard of mulch)
1 cubic yard will cover 15 square yards at 3 inches deep.
One cubic yard of mulch will cover approximately 160 square feet at a depth of 2". This rule also applies to hardwood bark mulch, hardwood bark fines, and double and tripled shredded mulch varieties.
It will cover about 8 sq.feet if you spread it one inch thick.
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.
It depends on how deep you want to lay it.
25 cubic feet or about 1 cubic yard.
100 cubic foot bags.
how to get 1600 mulch which is money in bin weevils
Half a cubic foot.
if your talking about soil or mulch, then you are going to cover approximately 300 square feet.
You need (182/3) divided by (cubic feet of mulch in each bag) bags.
5' x 5' = 25 ft2, at 2" thick that would be 1/6 of a foot, therefore 25/6 = 4 1/6 cubic feet.I would recommend laying mulch at least 3", if not 4" thick to keep the aggressive weeds down.Rule of Thumb for Mulch:1 cubic yard contains 27 cubic feet, and covers a 10' x 10' area to a depth of 3", so 1/2 of that, 13-14 cubic feet would cover your 25 ft2 area to a depth of 3" very nicely.Hope this helps, if so, please "Recommend Contributor"
