Step #1: Measure your beds.

If your beds have irregular shapes, simply draw approximate boxes around each bed to estimate the amount of mulch you need.

Step #2: Fill in the measurements of a bed in our calculator, then click the Calculate Mulch button.

The calculator will show you how much mulch you need for that bed..

How Deep Should My Mulch Beds Be?

We recommend you apply mulch the first time to 3-4 inches deep, and reapply each year 2-3 inches deep. If you have previously used a mulch with a higher wood content (i.e. cypress, economy, or a dyed product), it may be necessary to remove the old wood debris before applying new mulch.
