How to Measure Quantity of Compost Needed
Estimating the amount of compost that you need for your application depends on the size of the area that you have. To aid you in this effort, a spreadsheet has been developed to help you identify how much compost you need. All you need are the dimensions of the area you wish to amend with compost. The spreadsheet indicates how much compost is needed for the size of your area based on whether you'd like to incorporate 1, 2 or 3 inches of compost into your soil.
