Tips and Tricks for Measuring & Ordering Sod

If you need sod and don’t know where to start, turn to Park Avenue Sod Farm. We’ll help you get started with the measuring
and ordering tips below. Then when you’re ready to transform your lawn, we’ll be there – waiting.

To get started now, measure your yard and subtract your house dimensions and other areas not to be sodded. Area equals length times width. Whatever is left over is the amount you should order in square feet. It is not wise to cut corners. Give yourself a generous surplus for patching and extras. We have handy dandy calculators below, making it super simple to find out exactly how much sod you ‘ll need for the lawn of your dreams.

Square or Rectangle

To figure the area of a square or rectangle, measure the Length & Width and multiply.
Length x Width = Area
12 x 24 = 288 sq.ft.

Right Triangle


A Right Triangle has one 90º corner. To figure the area of a right triangle, multiply the two sides that contact the right angle and divide by 2
Length x Width / 2 = Area
12 x 24 = 288 ÷ 2 = 144 sq.ft.

Circle, 1/2 Circle, 1/4 Circle


To figure the area of a circle, take the radius times the radius, then multiply by 3.14. Radius is a straight line from the center of a circle to the outside of the circle.
(Radius x Radius) x 3.14 = Area
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 sq.ft.
Half Circle divide by 2
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 2 = 56.5 sq.ft.
Quarter Circle divide by 4
6 x 6 = 36 x 3.14 = 113 / 4 = 28.25 sq.ft.
