This guide helps you work out the metres of instant lawn you need
Once you have the correct m2 contact us and we will give you a quote. It is advisable to allow extra turf when ordering as you will have some wastage particularly if your lawn is of an irregular shape.
Measuring a rectangle
Measure the height and width of the square or rectangular area in metres.
To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply height x width
height 6m; width 15m
6m x 15m= 90m2
Measuring a circle
Measure the diameter of the circular area in metres.
To calculate the amount of turf required, use this simple formula. r = radius d = diameter
r x r x 3.14
diameter 13m radius 6.5m
6.5m x 6.5m x 3.14 = 132.7m
Measuring an oval
Measure the length and width of the oval area in metres.
To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply length x 0.80 then by width.
length 19m; width 10m
19m x 0.80 = 15.2m
15.2m x 10m = 152m2
Measuring a triangle
Measure the base and height of the triangular area in metres.
To calculate the amount of turf required, multiply base x 0.50 then by height.
base 16m; height 9m
16m x 9m ÷ 2 = 72m2
Measuring unusual shapes
Measure the metres by firstly dividing area into sections of regular shapes i.e.: circle, square and triangle.
To calculate the required amount of turf in square metres, apply the formulas for each shape and then add together to form total area. This calculation is only a rough guide; it is quite hard to determine the correct measurements for such an unusual area.
width 1 = 3m; width 2 = 2.5m; width 3 = 4m; width 4 = 4m; width 5 = 3.5m; width 6 = 1.8m;
3m + 2.5m + 4m + 4m + 3.5m 1.8m = 18.8m
18.8m/6(total of widths measured) = 3.13m
3.13 x 13.5m (length) = 42.25m3
