Before you purchase sod, you need to determine how much.
Sketch your yard
Make a sketch of the yard. You can mark the areas that you want to fill with sod. Measure the area around it. Next, take measurements around the area.
Garages and sidewalks should not be included in your calculations. You should always do the calculations to ensure that you don’t spend more or buy less sod.
Measure the area to be sodded and write down the numbers. You may need to divide the area into smaller parts in order to get a more exact result.
To cover an area in a circle, you will need to measure its radius. You should start at the center, and then work your way out to the edges.
Sometimes, you may need to buy enough sod to cover the entire area of your yard. Measure the base of the triangle and its height.
