Maylen color, size and availability
This landscaping stone is black in color with some white flecks in it. It also has some sparkles which really catch the eye when the sunlight hits it. It comes in irregular chunks that range in size from 1 1/2” to 3” max. Maylen Black comes out of North Carolina, a decorative stone popular with residential landscapers.
* What is a cubic yard?
A cubic yard measures 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. A cubic yard of mulch will cover a 10 ft. x 10 ft. area, 3 in. deep. (3 in. is the recommended depth for spreading mulch.) So a good rule of thumb is to calculate the square footage of the area to be covered with mulch and divide by 100. For example, imagine you have a front porch with a flower bed on each side. Each side measures 15 ft. x 10 ft. (150 sq. ft.). The total area to be covered is 150 + 150 = 300 sq. ft. To calculate the number of yards of mulch required, divide that by 100. So you need 3 yards of mulch.
