The bags of mulch are labeled in cubic feet so you need all three dimensions in feet. The length and width are already in feet but the depth is in inches. There are 12 inches in a foot so 2 inches is 2/12 feet. Hence the volume of mulch you need is
If you buy 3 cubic foot bags you will need 291.67/3 = 97.2 bags. To find the volume you could also use our volume calculator. Penny
