View Full Version : converting square yard to tons
I need to cover 300 yards with a bark or mulch and I need to convert the 300 yard to tons to see how many tons I needed delivered by a dump truck.
Can anyone helP?

You'd need to know the density of the mulch. Different types of bark and mulch will have different densities.
Since you know how many yards you need, and since most dump trucks have a known volume, you should be able to order by the dump truck full. Just determine the size of their dump truck.
