How to Calculate the Total Area in Square Feet
Calculating the total area in square feet you need to mulch sounds confusing – but there’s a simple way to do it! Here’s how:
- Draw the project site on a piece of graphing paper with one square equaling one foot
- Divide areas that aren’t perfect squares into rectangles, triangles or circles (as makes sense)
- Use the appropriate formulas for each irregular shape (noted below)
- Add all the squares together to get your total area in square feet
For irregular shapes, use the following formulas to determine the square feet per box:
- Rectangle = length x width
- Circle = 3.1416 x the square of the radius
- Triangle = ½ x base length x height

Frequently Asked Questions
Feeling confident is critical to a positive buying experience – and mulch is no different! That’s why we’ve taken the time to answer a few common questions below.
Is premium mulch worth it?
We certainly think so! Premium mulch is organic, so it feeds your landscape the nutrients it needs while decomposing over time. It’s also free of chemicals and bugs, so that it won’t harm your landscape either!
On the other hand, you can never be sure what you’re getting in those grab-and-go bags you buy in the garden section of your favorite chain store. Many of those bags contain inorganic materials like construction debris, plastics and treated wood particles. Plus, they may have been treated heavily with pesticides or have pests in them – all of which can ruin your beautiful outdoor space.
How often do I mulch my yard?
Generally, it would be best to lay new mulch once a year. The good news is that you don’t need to remove premium mulch before applying new. Instead, just layer it over and save yourself some extra labor. Leaving the old layer is beneficial for your yard since it will continue providing nutrients.
When is mulch season?
Technically, you can lay new mulch at any time of year. But mid to late spring is generally recommended.
How many inches deep should I spread mulch?
We generally recommend between two and three inches for most landscaping needs, including vegetable plots and flower gardens. However, the ideal coverage length can vary based on your project’s specifications.
