A partial solution for the math impaired

If you can’t remember how to calculate volume and are too occupied to look it up, this app is for you! Perfect if you’re buying soil or potting mix by the bag, the most expensive way to go.

Notably, it doesn’t calculate components if you’re making Mel’s Mix, which, of course is the important information as you’d be buying peat moss, vermiculite and compost. Nor does it breakout different compost amounts by source (5 recommended).

You’d only need two inputs. First, the total volume calculated by this app and second, the compost percent of the total volume (33% original Mel’s to 50% Mel’s II). My simple excel spreadsheet does both and calculates total cost and cost per cubic foot, so I’ll be deleting this app.

I do love the Garden app and am anxiously awaiting Garden +.

Not bad!

This is an ok app, if you’re only using bagged soil. I would have loved to see the option of cubic yards. This app could have been a nice feature on your seed to spoon growing app, which I LOVE!
