Please use the calculator to calculate how much material you will need for your specific landscape design projects.

The Yard Depot’s compound calculator takes away all of the guesswork. Enter the values requested in the field below and press calculate. Do not use commas or fractions.

Cubic Yard Calculator

Length (in feet)
Width (in feet)
Depth (in inches)
Cubic Yards needed:

  • 1 cubic yard covers 108 square feet 3 inches deep
  • 1 cubic yard covers 162 square feet 2 inches deep
  • 1 cubic yard covers 324 square feet 1 inch deep
  • 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard
  • Mulch is typically sold in 3 cu. ft. bags thus 9 bags = 1 yard
  • This calculator provides a reasonable estimate of proper mulch volume. However, land-surface irregularities and varying application depths will effect realized coverage.
