We used 25 to 30 bags of mulch in my mother’s yard this year. My husband buys it by the yard (loose) and brings it to our house in the back of a truck. I am trying to compare the price to see which is more economical. I just need to know how many bags are in a yard.
The cubic feet volume should be printed on the bag somewhere.
There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so if the bag is 3 cubic feet you need 9 bags to make a yard. If the bags are 1.5 cubic feet, you need 18 of them.
It is almost always more economical to buy by the truckload.
