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. Now, enter your measurements into our Sod Area Calculator. Or, figure out the sq. ft. of your areas based on the equations listed below and the total.
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.
To figure the area of a circle, take the radius times the radius, then multiply by 3.14. A 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 divided by 2
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 2 = 56.5 sq.ft.
Quarter Circle divided by 4
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 4 = 28.25 sq.ft.
