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
Square: 12 x 12 = 144 sq.ft.
Rectangle: 12 x 16 = 192 sq.ft.
Measuring a Circle Use This Formula:
(Radius x Radius) x 3.14 = Area
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 a Triangle Use This Formula:
Length x Width / 2 = Area
20 x 10 = 200 ÷ 2 = 100 sq.ft.
