The Q&A Archives: How much is a cubic foot?

Question: I am wanting to buy mulch to go in a planter that sourronds our grass in the back yard... I would say it is 150 wide 8 feet tall and 6 inches deep. How many cubic feet will I need?

Answer: If your planter is 150 feet long, 8 feet wide, and you want the mulch to be 6-inches deep, you'll need 24 cubic feet. (You'll typically get 100 square feet 3" deep per cubic yard).
