Getting Started

How much do I need to order?
 
How Deep?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some guidelines to follow:
Topdressing Lawns 1/4"-1/2"
Mulch 2" - 4"
Compost 2" - 3"
New Garden 6" - 24"

Square or Rectangle Areas

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Length x Width (in feet) x Depth (in inches)/324 =  cubic yards
 
Example: Space is 12 feet by 14 feet and I want to put 4 inches down.
 
12 x 14 x 4 = 672 / 324 = 2.0 yards

 
Circle Areas

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 3.1426 x radius (in feet) x radius (in feet) x Depth (in inches) / 324 = cubic yards
 
Example: My pool is 24 round, how much crusher dust will I need to put underneath?
 
3.1426 x 12 x 12 = 452 / 324 = 1.4 yards
 
  
Triangle Areas

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Base x Height (in feet) / 2 x Depth (in inches) / 324 = cubic yards
 
 
 
Oval Areas

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lenght x Width (both at midpoint in feet) x 0.8 x Depth (in inches) / 324 = cubic yards
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Note: 1 Cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
