What shape yard do you have?
Measuring the shape of your yard just got a lot easier with our lawn area calculator. You no longer need to worry about remembering math formulas or trying to find the calculator that may or may not be hidden somewhere in your desk. So read on and we’ll walk you through the process.
Getting the shape and size of your yard is the first and one of the most important parts of ordering turf, that’s why it’s necessary to get it right. If you overestimate the amount needed, you’ll be wasting money; while if you underestimate, you won’t have enough turf to complete your lawn.
Lawn Area Calculator’s Instructions
When measuring your lawn, you should break the area up into regular shapes that are easy to measure. Any shapes that aren’t rectangles, triangles, circles or semi-circles are classed as irregular and can usually be broken up into these shapes.
Although turf is usually the last thing to be installed in a backyard, don’t forget to account for any additions like decking or a pond that still needs to go in.
Once you have the required lengths for each of the shapes, it’s as simple as entering the amounts in our lawn area calculator below. Then, add the areas of each shape together and you have the total area of your lawn.
But there is just one more step. It is recommended that you order 5% more turf than the area of your yard because this will allow for any irregular shapes or for cuttings as we’d hate for you fall just short and have a bare patch, or to not be able to turf all the way against your fence.

have been really happy with the quality of the lawn. The lawn has really taken off and looking fantastic. Delivery time and location was exactly what I had asked for. I couldn’t ask for better service.

Over the years I have used several turf suppliers but now only use Grech’s Turf Supplies due to superior quality turf at a great price. I always find that delivery of turf is prompt and careful consideration given in regard to where and how the stacks are placed on site. All enquiries made by phone are met with friendly service and advice , while orders are easily placed on-line. All varieties of lawn are accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity. Turf is always weed-free. I recommend Grech’s Turf Supplies for any project large or small.
