How much is one unit of barkdust?

This is probably our most common question.  We usually explain that one unit is “the equivalent of 7.4 cubic yards” which we realize is not very informative, practically speaking.  We have also used the analogy that one unit, when dumped in a pile, is about the size of a Volkswagon beetle without the wheels.  That’s a little better, but still kind of vague.  The most important information is that one unit of bark will cover 1100 square feet at a 2″ depth.  This will require that you at least roughly measure the areas of the beds you want to cover.  We thought this visual might also help.  That’s Tom’s Honda Element parked beside it for reference.
