Help with Calculation of Areas for Turf
Using a measuring tape, measure the area to be turfed. Below are some basic formulas to help you during the process of measuring.
To get the area of a square or rectangle, measure two sides in metres (marked A and B in our diagram) and multiply them together.
A X B = Area m2 in our example if A and B were both 5 metres then 5 X 5 = 25m2
To get the area of a circle, measure the radius (marked as 5 metres in our diagram). You then need to multiply Pi X the radius squared3.
14 X Radius2 = Area m2 in our example that is 3.14 X 5 X 5 = 78.5m2
To get the area of a triangle, measure the base (marked as 10 metres in our diagram). You then need to halve that and multiply the result by the height (5 metres in our diagram)
Half Base X Height = Area m2 in our example that is 5 X 5 = 25m2
If you need any further assistance on measuring your area to be turfed, please phone the office or mobile and one of our friendly staff will guide you through the procedure. If all calculations are made properly this should result in the total m2 of lawn you will need. If the area is an irregular shape, roughly sketch the dimensions onto a piece of paper and try to make regular shapes out of it and add the totals together.
