# How to Measure Your Lawn For Sod 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 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. #### Right Triangle

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.
