How To Measure Lawn Area

Lawn area measurement is key to ensuring that everything goes as smoothly as possible in the actual process of laying your lawn. Follow these important guidelines to ensure that nothing goes wrong and that you have the right amount of turf for your new lawn.

Firstly, measure the area of your planned lawn by multiplying the average length by the average width – this will determine the amount of turf you need.We recommend sketching a plan, just so that you can visualise the area beforehand. Measuring a regular shaped area – a rectangle or square, will be a much more straightforward process for lawn area measurement. But measuring an irregular shaped area is not so simple.

If you are measuring an irregularly shaped area you will almost certainly find it easier to break the area up into smaller shapes in order to assist you with your calculations. When this job has been done, we further recommend that you add 5% to the final area to cover wastage and trimming to fit edges.
