## How Do I Calculate How Much Sod I Need?

To calculate how much sod you need for your next landscaping project, first you need to know how big the area is that you want to cover.

Rectangular Space

To find the area of a rectangular space, measure the length and width of the space to be sodded in feet. Plug those numbers into the handy-dandy sod area calculator above. Or multiple the length by the width to obtain the square footage.

Circular Space
If the space you are looking to sod is circular measure the diameter, the longest possible section, of the circle in feet. Plug that number into the sod calculator above.

Triangular Space (that includes a right or 90 degree angle)
If you have a triangular space, measure the length of the two sides of the space that meet at a right angle. Plug in the length of side one and side two into the sod calculator.

Irregular Shaped Spaces

Irregular shapes are common in landscaping. Often landscape designers attempt to break up straight lines, giving the lawn a more natural appearance.  The area of an irregularly shaped lawn can be difficult to measure.

If you have an irregularly shaped area: measure the space in smaller, rectangular shaped areas
