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).
