How much turf do I need?

Step 1: Create a sketch of your lawn area.

Step 2: If the lawn area is not exactly square or rectangular, break the area down into sections on your sketch to make it easier to accurately measure sections.

Step 3: Using a tape measure take the measurements of each section and write the measurements on the sketch.

Step 4: Double check all your measurements and calculations and add about 3-5% to allow for cutting in.

Measuring triangular lawn areas

For triangular shaped lawn areas we suggest you measure length by width and then divide the total by 2.

Measuring oval lawn areas

To accurately measure oval areas, measure the width in a number of places evenly spaced along the length of the area, as shown in the diagram below. Add these measurements together, then divide by the number of measurements you made to find the average width. Use this average figure to multiply by the length measurement for the total turf required.

Measuring circular lawn area

For circular areas measure the radius of the circle, then multiply the radius x radius x 3.14 (A = Pi x R²)

Note: Remember to double check all your measurements and calculations and then add an additional 3-5% allowance for cutting in.

If you would like us to check your calculations you can email your labelled sketch to us at admin@topendturf.com.au.
