Calculating the correct amount of sod required for your lawn is essential. For your convenience, we have listed the most common shapes and the formulas you need to ensure you order enough sod for your landscaping needs.
Square or RectangleLength (L) x Width (W) = Area (A) 
Triangle0.5 x Base (B) x Height (H) = Area (A) 
Circle.8 x Diameter (D) x Diameter (D) = Area (A) 
Ovals or Egg Shapes0.8 x Length (L) x Width (W) = Area (A) 
Unusual ShapesDivide the area into sections of regular geometric shapes, calculate the area of each section then total.

Irregular ShapesFind the length of the longest line across the area. Every 10 ft along the length line, measure the width of the area at right angles to the length line. Total all widths and multiply by 10. Area = (A + B + C, etc) x 10
