The Q&A Archives: Mulch Coverage

Question: What are the measurements of a yard of mulch? How much will it cover?

Answer: A cubic yard of mulch is 27 cubic feet, or think of a pile 3 by 3 by 3 foot. It will cover a little over 300 square feet (actually 324) roughly an inch thick, or a 100 square feet (a 10 by 10 foot area, or a 5 by 20 foor area for example) about three inches thick. Your typical mulch layer should be two to three inches deep.
