This tool will help you calculate how much mulch you need for your garden.

## How to Use the Mulch Calculator

To use the mulch calculator, input the length and width of the area you wish to cover in feet, and the desired depth of mulch in inches. After entering the required values, click on the “Calculate” button to get the volume of mulch needed displayed in both cubic feet and cubic yards.

## Calculation Details

The calculator works by first converting the entered depth from inches to feet because the length and width are provided in feet. It then multiplies the length, width, and depth (in feet) to get the volume in cubic feet. Since 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet, the calculator divides the volume in cubic feet by 27 to convert the volume to cubic yards.

## Limitations

This mulch calculator assumes a perfectly rectangular coverage area. For irregularly shaped areas, the actual volume might vary. Additionally, it is important to ensure all input fields are filled correctly. Any missing or incorrect field will give an invalid result or an error prompt.
