The Mulch Needed for an Irregular Area calculators computes the numberquadrilateral.png                            AREA COVERED of regular 2 ft3 bags of wood-chip mulch needed to cover an area such as a field, garden or planter.  

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your length units and enter the following:

  • (a) The length of side a of your four sided area.
  • (b) The length of side b of your four sided area.
  • (c) The length of side c of your four sided area.
  • (d) The length of side d of your four sided area.
  • (D) The length of the diagonal of your four sided area (see diagram).
  • (DP) The desired depth of mulch.
  • (u) The output units.  This is either system to get the cubic feet or bags to get the number of 2 ft3 bags needed.

The Mulch Needed for an Irregular Area calculator will then compute the area of your garden and then the volume of mulch and then divides the volume by the number of cubic feet in a standard mulch bag. If system is chosen, the volume of mulch is returned in cubic feet. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units via the pull-down menu.
