Figuring out how much you need

RECTANGLE:

    Measure Length (L) and Width (W) in feet.

    Length x Width = Square Feet

    Determine desired depth of material (see chart below)

    (Square feet of area) divided by (sq.ft. per yard) from chart = cubic yards needed

CIRCLE:

    Determine radius (1/2 distance of diameter of area) in feet.

    Radius x radius x 3.14 = square feet

    (Square feet) divided by (sq. ft. per yard) from chart = cubic yards needed

CONVERSION CHART:

    This chart converts square feet into cubic yards

    1 cubic yard will cover the following square feet areas at depth shown

 

1/4" deep.....................1,296 sqft

   1" deep.....................324 sqft

   2" deep.....................162 sqft

   3" deep.....................108 sqft

   4" deep.....................81 sqft

   6" deep.....................54 sqft

 12" deep.....................27 sqft

Fabric/Weed Barrier Under Mulch?

   At Jordan's Landscape Innovations, LLC, we believe that the answer to this age-old debate

is NO!  

   Mulch placed on top of fabric/weed barrier will

inevitably decompose and form a layer of compost that will only PROMOTE weed growth ON TOP OF the fabric.

   We recommend instead, applying a pre-emergent weed control to prevent weed germination.

   As always, JLI is here to assist in not only the installation of your mulched beds, but continued maintenance as well.

   Call us today to schedule your gardens annual

topdressing or maintenance visit!
