How To Measure

Measuring for a new lawn

Measuring your proposed lawn area and sketching it on graph paper will simplify your estimate process. We recommend the following formulas:

Square or rectangle

Multiply the width by the height, for example, 4.0m x 5.5m = 22 square metres

Circle

Multiply the radius by itself, and then by 3.14, for example, 4 x 4 x 3.14 = 51 square metres

Triangle

Multiply the height by the base, and divide by 2, for example, 5.0m x 6.0m / 2 = 15 square metres

Volume

Multiply the height by the base by the height, for example, 4.0m x 5.5m x 0.2m = 44 cubic metres

Bergland sods are supplied in 460mm x 740mm slabs, three slabs per square meter. Add 5% to the total order to compensate for waste.
