                  The grid below can help you determine the amount of sod you need.  Many yards are an odd shaped, do your best to square it off and measure each area separately.  See care guide under Maintenance for more information.




Measuring and Estimating
To get an idea of how much sod you will need, think of the area to be sodded as separate shapes like rectangles and triangles. Move the mouse over this diagram for an example:

  What to Measure  
Area Estimate Calculator
First measure the sides of the rectangles and triangles that make up the area you want to sod. Then enter the measurements into the calculator below, one area at a time. Click "Add Area" to add each to the sum of areas shown at right. Your estimated total area will be shown in the box.
Remember, this is an estimate only.

    Area Side 1 Side 2 Total Area (sq. yards)
ft ft
Triangle:   ft ft


    To do a "Running Yard Measurement" Divide length needed by 6.75 to get number of yards required.

   If you wanted to know how much sod is needed for 1 row of 200 feet, divide 200 by 6.75 = 29.62 or 30 yards.
