How to Measure for Mulch

The best rule of thumb when it comes to measuring how much mulch you need for your project is to break your project surface into rectangles. Once broken up into rectangles, you will need to calculate the square footage by multiplying the length (L) x width (W) = Total square feet (SQFT). For example, let’s say that area you want to cover is 17’ by 6’. This would equate to 17’ (L) x 6’ (W) = 102 SQFT.

Here is a visual representation on how we recommend breaking down your space and calculating the total square footage.

If math isn’t your thing, we’ve made it easier than ever for you with our rubber mulch calculator! Just select your planned usage, your applied depth, and enter your site dimensions (length and width). Once your information is imputed, GroundSmart™ Rubber will calculate the amount of mulch required for your project along with product recommendations and exclusive offers
