I cannot tell you how many times I have stood in the garden center trying to calculate how much soil or mulch I need for particular areas…. Yes, I KNOW I should have done it at home first – but that would have been the easy way – lol.
But another thing is even when I figure it out, I get to the store and there will be 10 bags of soil and they will be 32qt, 40lbs, 1 cu. ft. bags…. ugh! How in the world do I figure that out?
So, I decided to make it easy for you and for me! I made these calculators to help answer the question: How Much Soil Do I Need? and How Much Mulch Do I Need?
All you need to do is measure your spot and decide how deep you need it and the calculators will tell you how many bags you need from the most commonly used measurements in the garden center.
