 How much material do I need ???
 One of the most common questions we get is...." But how much ( Mulch, Bark, Compost, Soil, Gravel ) do I NEED?!!"Well, there isn't a real short answer, but there is a way to calculate approximately how much you'll want.Landscape materials such as compost, topsoil, bark, mulch and gravel are commonly sold by the rough yard, or partial yard.  A yard of material is 27 cubic ft.In other words a 9'x3'x1' space.To figure out how much that will cover, you just need to know about how large an areayou want to cover.  If you are mulching a bedthat is 20' long and 8' wide, you will be trying to cover about 160 sq. feet.  Now you need to know approximately how deepyou want the material to be, such as 2 inches, 4 inches, 6 inches etc.   One yard ofmaterial will cover about 162 sq. feet, 2"deep.  You get this by knowing that one cubic yardwould cover 27 sq. feet, one foot deep.  Since 2"is 1/6th of a foot ( eek, fractions! ) you wouldmultiply 27 by 6 to find out how much it would cover2" deep.  Got it?  No?  Well, no fear.  We are just greatat getting out the calculator and figuring it out for you!Dont' be afraid to email us or call and we'll help.  Justgive us the "approximate" measurements of the areasyou want to cover.  We'll do the rest.In general with mulch products you want to put 2-4" down.  Topsoils just depend on what you're doing...overseeding, ammending soils, creating new beds,etc.  With most gravel, for paths, walkways or driveways, you'd want to put down 2" or so, more if you are going over soil that has never had gravel on top of it, less if you are just putting new gravel on top of exisiting gravel. We'll be happy to help you figure it out, that's what we are here for.With Landscape rock, a safe figure is one ton per13-15 SQ. Foot of wall area.  In other words, if youare building a wall 10' long and 2' high, you wouldhave 20 sq. foot of wall face area.  You would wantto buy about 1.5 tons of landscape rock.
 A well mulched bed such asthis one, looks good year round, is easy to keep clean, and helps retain all important moisture in the soil.
.... but of course, nobody wants to end
up with a mountain of material leftover!
