Most will give you the price per scoop. Ask how many cubic meters there are in the bucket so you can calculate the price per cubic meter. My bowl has a volume of 1.25 cubic meters. 2 balls fill a full size collection level.
2 scoops = 1 cubic meter or 27 cubic feet. Each cubic meter is approximately 100 square feet by 3 inches deep or 150 square feet by 2 inches deep.
Multiply the total area in feet by the depth you want to mulch in inches. For example, if your square footage is 648 and you want 2 inches deep, multiply 648 by 2 to get 1296 (648 x 2 = 1296). Divide your answer by 324 (1 cubic foot of mulch covers 324 square feet and 1 inch deep).
A 2 cubic foot lot is 8 square meters.
When applied in a 4-inch layer, 1 cubic foot will cover 81 square feet. Distributed to a depth of 3 inches, one cubic foot of mulch covers 108 square feet, and a 2 inch layer covers 135 square feet.
McCarty says one of the questions he gets the most is whether it is cheaper to buy bagged mulch than bulk. The answer is no. Most bags are 2 cubic feet, he says. Customers can save a lot of money by purchasing mulch locally, but a mulch delivery fee may be charged.
Product weights may vary due to moisture content. Typically, mulched products weigh between 400,800 lbs. per cubic foot of compost weighs between 1000 and 1600 pounds, and soil mixes weigh between 22002700 pounds.
A 1 to 2 inch layer of fine mulch should be fine, while the coarser material should be 3 to 4 inches deep. Too much of either type can choke your plants. Where you don’t want it to grow, you can apply it as thick as you like.
Mulch installation costs
One cubic meter equals 27 cubic feet. You can use the electronic calculator to determine how many cubic meters of material are needed. Typically 1 cubic meter of aggregate, sand or earth corresponds to 1.5 tons.
A standard pickup holds three cubic meters of mulch (fully loaded). Two cubic meters is roughly the level of the whole body. When collecting dirt, sand and gravel, only one cubic meter on a truck is recommended.
Mulch comes in bags, usually 2-3 cubic feet, or in trucks, measured in cubic feet. Bagged mulch is much more expensive, but it’s easier to work with, especially if you don’t have room for a ton of loose mulch. When shopping in bags, you can buy different types for different purposes.
A 3- to 4-inch deep layer of mulch prevents germination of most weed seeds in the soil and helps retain moisture. However, it’s not always better. Limit the depth to 5-6 inches, especially for shallow plants.
Most people spend between 210 and 400 per meter with installation, and the average price is 325. Those who choose to install mulch themselves only spend 60-100 per garden.
One to two inches of rubber tires are enough for landscaping and horticulture. For playgrounds, the American Society for Testing and Materials requires a standard safety depth of three to six inches of mulch. Enough pillow was found to go down from 1.80 to 12 meters.
