Mulch Calculator South Jersey

How to figure rectangle manually:

  1. Length x Width = Square Feet
  2. Square Feet ÷ “X” = Cubic Yards (to find “X,” match depth with number in table below)
  3. To convert Cubic Yards to Tons*: Cubic Yards x 1.4 = Tons
  4. To convert Tons to Cubic Yards*: Tons ÷ 1.4 = Cubic Yards

* 1.4 is a rule of thumb that will work for most sand and gravel products (1 yard = 2,800#). Some products such as soils and mixes may vary due to their different bulk densities (weight per cu. yd).

Example 1:

2,000 Square Ft. bunker at 6″ deep

2,000 ÷ 54 = 37 Cubic Yards Bunker Sand

37 x 1.4 = 52 Tons

Example 2:

To cover cart path 1,200′ x 4′ x 3″ deep

1,200 x 4 = 4,800 square feet

4,800 ÷ 108 = 44.5 cubic yards gravel

44.5 x 1.4 = 63 tons
