This chart is to help in determining how many scoops (yards) of mulch you will need for your project. Our scoop is a full cubic yard (27 cubic feet) bucket. We also have a half yard scoop/bucket. If you are comparing to bagged mulch, a normal bag has 2 cubic feet in it; one scoop would be equivalent to almost 14 bags.
Find your square footage on the left column.Then go to the right to the desired depth of mulch. You will see how much is needed. This is an estimate only, but will be very close. If you need less than a half scoop, we will fill up your 5 gallon buckets for $2.00 each. This will be close to 1 cubic yard.
