Likewise, how do I calculate how much bark I need?
Bark is usually sold by volume in litres or cubic meters (m3) so it is relatively easy to calculate how much you need to fill an area. All you have to do is measure the length, width and depth of the area (preferably in meters) and multiply the three figures together to give you the volume in cubic meteres or m3.
Additionally, how much area does a bag of bark cover? As a guide, each of our bulk bags will cover approximately 15 sq meters to a depth of 25mm.
Also Know, how much does a yard of bark dust cover?
Technically, one cubic yard is equivalent to 27 cubic feet of bark. It covers about 160 square feet at a 2 inch depth. Again, this is only useful if you know approximately how many square feet you need to cover. A standard or even small sized pick-up will easily carry one full yard.
How much bark do I need for play area?
