When you're planning on adding mulch to flower beds or in other areas around your house, make sure to measure the area prior to ordering mulch. Depending on the depth of the mulch, it will vary how much mulch you will need. Approximately, one yard of mulch at a 3 inch depth will cover 108 square feet, a 2 inch depth will cover 135 square feet.
