Here’s how to measure your yard for sod. Grab a piece of paper and draw the areas to be sodded. Break up the areas into the shapes listed below. Measure the areas and write down your measurements. Figure out the sq.ft. of your areas based on the equations listed below and total.
Square or Rectangle
To figure the area of a square or rectangle, measure the Length & Width and multiply.
Length x Width = Area
12 x 24 = 288 sq.ft.
A Right Triangle has one 90º corner. To figure the area of a right triangle, multiply the two sides that contact the right angle and divide by 2
Length x Width / 2 = Area
12 x 24 = 288 ÷ 2 = 144 sq.ft.
Circle, 1/2 Circle, 1/4 Circle
To figure the area of a circle, take the radius times the radius, then multiply by 3.14. Radius is a straight line from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle.
(Radius x Radius) x 3.14 = Area
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 sq.ft.
Half Circle divide by 2
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 2 = 56.5 sq.ft.
Quarter Circle divide by 4
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 4 = 28.25 sq.ft.
