Measuring your lawn area / Lawn Installation
Lawns come in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few handy tips to help you work out how much soil and lawn you are going to need.
To measure the area of a square or rectangle, just multiply the length by the width. To measure the area of a circle, multiply the radius by itself and then by 3.14. To measure the area of a triangle, multiply the height by the base divided by 2. You will need 1 cubic metre per 10 square metres. For irregular shapes it is a good idea to break the area down, measure those and then add them all up. And always remember to add about 5-10% extra on your order for contingencies.
