How to measure the area for your lawn

Measuring a Rectangle

  • Measure the height and width of the square or rectangular area in metres
  • To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply height x width
  • Example:
  • - Height 6 m; Width 15 m
  • - 6 m x 15 m= 90 m2

Measuring a Circle

  • Measure the diameter of the circular area in metres
  • To calculate the amount of turf required, use this simple formula. r = radius d = diameter
  • r x r x 3.14
  • Example:
  • - Diameter 13 m radius 6.5 m
  • - 6.5 m x 6.5 m x 3.14 = 132.7 m

Measuring an Oval

  • Measure the length and width of the oval area in metres
  • To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply length x 0.80 then by width
  • Example:
  • - Length 19 m; Width 10 m
  • - 19 m x 0.80 = 15.2 m
  • - 15.2 m x 10 m = 152 m2

Measuring unusual shapes

  • Measure the length and width of the oval area in metres.
  • To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply length x 0.80 then by width.
  • Example:
  • - Length 19 m; Width 10 m
