Break your beds into shapes to measure

Your beds may be unusual shapes that make it difficult to measure. No worries. Just break them into smaller, more standard shapes (like rectangles) and add them together. Better yet, plug each area into the calculator above and let us do the work for you.

In most beds, aim for 3”

How much mulch you should use can depend on a few factors, like which plants are growing in the bed and what type of mulch you’re using. With Greencycle’s organic mulch, we recommend a 3” covering for most beds.
