Calculate Manually


Step#1: Sketch and Measure

To determine the quantity of sod you will need for your project you must find the surface area of your lawn. You can do this with a tape measure or “wheel”. Make a rough sketch of your landscape and divide the total area of your newly planned lawn into individual squares, rectangles, triangles, or circles. Next, use tape or wheel to accurately measure the length and width of each individual shape and record it on your sketch.

Step#2: Do the math

Once you have your measurements you are ready to find your square footage. Look at each individual shape on your sketch and figure its surface area by applying the appropriate formula. i.e. the surface area of a square is the length times the width.  Once you have all the surface area of each individual shape you will add them all together to get your total square footage of sod needed for your project.

Step#3: Account for Extra

We suggest adding 2% or 3% extra for installation losses when fitting into odd-shaped areas. Its easier to have a little leftover than having to arrange to get more sod.
