# Measuring for Sod

## Measuring Your YardforSod and Mulch

### Measuring out Square, Rectangle, Triangle, and Circular Areas of Sod

To measure sod for your yard we recommend getting paper and pencil and drawing out the areas where you are going to install sod.  Measure these areas and write down the measurements and the full amount of sod you will need. We highly recommend adding 3%-5% extra to make sure you have adequate sod for your project.

If you have a complex shaped yard, break it down into basic shapes and calculate each area separately.

### Measuring Squares and Rectangle Sod Area

Measuring a Square Use This Formula:
Length x Width = Area
Examples:
Square: 12 x 12 = 144 sq.ft.
Rectangle: 12 x 16 = 192 sq.ft.

### Measuring Circles

Measuring a Circle Use This Formula:
(Radius x Radius) x 3.14 = Area
Examples:
Full Circle
4 x 4 = 16 x 3.14 = 50 sq.ft.
Half Circle divide by 2
4 x 4 = 16 x 3.14 = 50.24 / 2 = 25 sq.ft.
Quarter Circle divide by 4
4 x 4 = 16 x 3.14 = 50.24 / 4 = 12.56 sq.ft.

### Measuring Triangles

Measuring a Triangle Use This Formula:
Length x Width / 2 = Area
Example:
20 x 10 = 200 ÷ 2 = 100 sq.ft.
