The Q&A Archives: Cedar Mulch

Question: How big is five yards of cedar mulch. I know mathematically one yard is 27 cubic feet, but I am trying to get a visual assessment if I had five yards dumped on my driveway, how big the pile would be?

Answer: One cubic yard would be a pile that's 3' by 3' by 3'. So if you have 5 times that, the pile would be 15' by 15' by 15'. It can be piled higher and therefore need a smaller footprint, but that's a quick way to measure.
