Example: If you want to cover 300 Sq. ft. with mulch and you want it to be 2″ deep, you need either 2 yds. of mulch or 18 bags.
1 bag of mulch is 3 cu.Ft. and  covers 36 Sq. ft. of bed with a 1″ depth of mulch
1 yd. = 27 cu. Ft. or 9 bags (3 cu. Ft. bags)
1 yd. = 27 cu. Ft. or 13.5 bags (2 cu. Ft. bags)
