How to Measure Your
Turf Area:
Easy mathematics can take a lot of the guesswork
out of measuring your turf area. Use any of the following formulas and
diagrams to meet your yard or layout.

CIRCULAR AREA
A = 3.14 x R2
Example: Circle's radius (r) is 10 feet. Multiply the known 3.14 by the
radius squared, thus:
A = 3.14 x 102
A = 3.14 x 100
A = 314 square feet
SQUARE/RECTANGLE AREA
A = Base x Height
Example: 'B'ase is 10 feet, and the 'H'eight is 10 feet, thus:
A = 10' x 10'
A = 100 square feet
TRIANGULAR AREA
A = (Base x Height)
2
Example: 'B'ase is 10 feet, and the 'H'eight (base to point) is 20 feet,
thus:
A = 10' x 20' A = 200
2 2
A = 100 square feet
COMBINATION FREEFORM & BREAKDOWN TO FORMS
Break the freeform area to obvious forms and calculate each form's area.
Once each form is calculated, add the areas together to derive a total
area.
1  3.14 x R2
2  b' x h'
3  b' x h'
