If you have a newly constructed home there are different ways to find out your estimated square footage. You can talk to your builder and they may be able to give you an estimate of how much you need. If you have had a sprinkler system installed, you may also be able to get an estimated square footage from them. Keep in mind that these would probably just be close estimates. You may want to measure yourself before you place the final order, so that you don't order too much or too little sod.
We sell our sod by the square foot. Square footage is just length in feet multiplied by width in feet. Below is an example of how to figure the square footage of different shaped areas.
To Find the Area:
Section A: multiply the length x the width
Section B: multiply the length x the width of both square "B" and of square "I", then subtract the square footage of "I" from the square footage of square "B", to get the square footage of "B"
Section C: add the two short sides opposite each other, then divide by 2. Add the two longer sides opposite each other, then divide by 2 , Multiply the two results to get the square footage of that area
Section D: multiply the length x the width, then divide by 2
Section E through H: multiply the length x the width
After finding the square feet of each section, add all the totals together to get a grand total amount of square feet for your yard.
